South African wildlife producer Earth Touch is to coproduce three one-off specials and a three-part series about African predators with U.S. cable network Smithsonian Channel.

Fatal Attractions (one x 50-minutes) examines encounters between African predators; Africa’s Piranha (one x 50-minutes, pictured) follows extreme angler Andy Coetzee as he studies Tigerfish in their natural environment; and Frogzilla (one x 50-minutes) profiles large amphibians – past and present – native to Africa.

Finally, the three-part series Africa’s Killing Fields (three x 50-minutes) takes a look at predatory behavior in three different locations across the continent.

Earth Touch has the global distribution rights to the programs, excluding North America.
