Wildlife producer/distributor Earth Touch has pre-sold five projects to National Geographic Channels International.

The programs are to air on Nat Geo Wild internationally. They include Tiger on the Run (1x 50 minutes), which follows the story of a young male tiger searching for sanctuary in an Indian national park; Electric Amazon (1x 50 minutes), which looks at the “freak show of fish life” that has developed in the Amazon basin; I, Crocodile (1x 50 minutes) which examines crocodile behavior through detailed study of a croc cadaver; Creative Killers (3 x 60 minutes), which looks at predator behavior; and Hippos After Dark (pictured; 1 x 50 minutes), which studies the nocturnal activities of hippos in Zambia.

“We are pleased to have a solid global partner in Nat Geo Wild and their unswerving support is hugely valuable to us,” said Chris Fletcher, director of sales and programming at Earth Touch, in a statement.
