This isn't a typical blue-chip natural history doc. Wildwives tells its tales with a wink, 'casting' a female hippo, lioness, cheetah, elephant and baboon as the lead 'characters' in this look at life in the wilds of the African Savannah.

This isn’t a typical blue-chip natural history doc. Sure, it’s directed by acclaimed wildlife doc director/editor Laurent Frapat, and contains more than its fair share of breathtaking cinematography and interesting animal behaviors. But with a sly nod to modern TV staples, Wildwives tells its tales with a wink, ‘casting’ a female hippo, lioness, cheetah, elephant and baboon as the lead ‘characters’ in this look at life in the wilds of the African Savannah.
