Discovery Channel has set a June 6 premiere date for the natural history series Life Story(pictured).

Announced in 2011 under the title Survival, the six-part series is narrated by Sir David Attenborough and is a coproduction between Discovery, BBC’s Natural History Unit and France Télévisions. It aired on the BBC last year.

Life Story looks at challenges different animals face throughout their lives, from their first steps to adapting to adulthood and breeding and fending off enemies. Producers shot in 4K in 29 countries across six continents, including Asia, Africa and Australia.

The series will be release on Blu-ray and DVD in late fall through BBC Home Entertainment. BBC Natural History Unit’s Mike Gunton served as executive producer.

Life Story will debut on Discovery on June 6 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
