U.S. net Nat Geo Wild has ordered a three-part series and three hour-long specials from natural history producer-distributor Earth Touch.

The South Africa-headquartered group has secured a commission for the 3 x 60-minute series Predator Fail, on deadly hunters, which is set to air internationally on Nat Geo Wild next year.

Earth Touch has also penned copro deals with Nat Geo Wild for one-off natural history specials March of the Elephants (1 x 48 minutes), which follows a herd through the Kalahari Desert; Blood Rivals: Lion vs. Buffalo (1 x 48 minutes), on the age-old battle between the predator and its prey; and Cobra Mafia (pictured above, 1 x 48 minutes), on the different species of cobra.

“National Geographic is a great supporter of our programming, and we are looking forward to seeing this relationship flourish further in the coming year, resulting in a fresh crop of world-class factual television,” said Chris Fletcher, director of sales and programming at Earth Touch, in a statement.
