Smithsonian Channel is preparing to monkey around the world with Offspring Films’ forthcoming primate series Amazing Monkeys.

Amazing Monkeys is slated to explore the story of primate evolution while following biologist and host Patrick Aryee as he journeys to Asia, Africa and Central and South America to unlock the branches of the primate family tree.

Through intimate monkey encounters, wildlife photography, field demonstrations and CGI, the program will trace the history of four monkey dynasties – prosimians, Old World monkeys, New World monkeys and apes – in order to uncover their migrations stories, lost lands and mass extinctions.

The series is executive produced by Alex Williamson and Isla Robertson for Offspring Films; and Joy Galane and David Royle for Smithsonian Channel.

Amazing Monkeys premieres June 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
