A Perfect Planet and Mysterious Planet Feature Narration By Sir David Attenborough and David Schwimmer Respectively
Discovery+, the definitive non-fiction, real-life subscription streaming service, will present a slate of nature documentaries and specials when the service launches January 4, 2021.
From executive producer and Emmy(r) winner, Alastair Fothergill, series producer Huw Cordey, and narrated by the incomparable Sir David Attenborough, A PERFECT PLANET is a new five-part series that highlights the natural forces that shape our environment and its inhabitants. In addition, the streaming service will present MYSTERIOUS PLANET, a new innovative five-part series narrated by David Schwimmer examining the earth’s greatest evolutionary mysteries. Also, the platform will have the U.S. premiere of JUDI DENCH’S WILD BORNEO ADVENTURE and THE IMPOSSIBLE ROW
A PERFECT PLANET is a new five-part series from Sir David Attenborough and the award-winning team behind the original Planet Earth and The Hunt. In a unique fusion of blue chip natural history and earth sciences, A PERFECT PLANET explains how the living planet operates, showing how the forces of nature – weather, ocean currents, solar energy and volcanoes – drive, shape and support Earth’s great diversity of life. In doing so, it reveals how animals are perfectly adapted to whatever the environment throws at them.
The series takes audiences on a stunning visual journey, from lands drenched by the Indian Monsoon and the slopes of fiery Hawaiian volcanoes, to the tidal islands of the Bahamas and the frozen wastes of Ellesmere Island. From Arctic wolves prowling moonlit landscapes in winter, to frozen wood frogs magically thawing back to life in spring; from the vampire finches of the Galapagos who drink the blood of seabirds, to the African flamingos who gather in their thousands every year in a vast volcanic lake to breed.
