FME will launch the four series, Ocean Mysteries, Everyday Health, Culture Click and Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown, at MIPCOM in Cannes next month.

Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown is a 26 x 30-minute series that sees wildlife expert Jack Hanna counting down his top 10 favorite animals and adventures from around the world, while another popular wildlife host, Jeff Corwin takes on aquatic animals in Ocean Mysteries (26 x 30-minutes).

Health education series Everyday Health (26 x 30-minutes) is hosted by athletes Laila Ali and Ethan Zohn, the latter of whom was also a Survivor winner with his wife Jenna Morasca.

Finally, Culture Click (26 x 30-minutes) is a news magazine show for the 13- to 16-year-old set, hosted by E! Entertainment’s Nzinga Blake.

Jeff Tahler, senior VP of acquisitions and development at FME, said: “These outstanding series offer compelling, family-friendly entertainment that is sure to engage viewers of all ages and cultures. Litton has an excellent track record of producing quality programming, and we look forward to working with it now and in the future.”
