Blink Entertainment is behind Going Ape, a three-part special premiering on May 13 on National Geographic Channel in the U.S., which explores the connection between human and ape behavior.

Using hidden camera experiments, analysis from evolutionary psychologists and footage of wild apes, the special examines the human interaction and social dynamics that can be linked to our monkey cousins.

Episodes will look at how finding a mate in the primate world is similar to the human dating world, as well as similarities in the alpha males and social climbers of each species.

For Blink, Going Ape’s executive producer is Justine Kershaw, series producer is Matt J. Smith, and producer/director is Matthew Gillbe. For National Geographic Channel, executive producers are Ed Sayer and Richard J. Wells.
