Smithsonian Channel is prepping a documentary about Montana filmmaker Casey Anderson and his relationship with a mountain lion named Mama Mo.
The Mountain Lion And Me follows Anderson for one year as he becomes fixated on the adult mountain lion and her cubs, who are hunting in his backyard in Paradise Valley, Montana. Anderson captures the intimate lives of the mountain lions in the wild, following their every move.
The Mountain Lion And Me premieres March 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
Accompanying the release of the the doc is Casey Anderson’s Wild Tracks — a series of six episode shorts launching March 26 on Smithsonian Earth. The series will showcase the wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem — an area Anderson has spent years exploring. The first episode, Battle Of The Big Horns, will be available to watch for free at SmithsonianEarthTV.com starting March 14.
The Mountain Lion And Me and Casey Anderson’s Wild Tracks are produced by Vanessa Boshoff, Deny Staggs and Casey Anderson of VisionHawk Films. Tria Thalman and David Royle serve as executive producers for Smithsonian Channel and Smithsonian Earth.
