The Smithsonian Channel’s coproduction Migrating to Mexico has entered production, and will air on the U.S. and Latin America channels in 2019.
The blue-chip natural history program boasts unprecedented access to the wildlife of Mexico, which is home to over 20,000 species
Some of the animals featured – ranging from the monarch butterfly to the 30-ton grey whale – will be seen migrating across the desert, jungles, mountains, reefs and the open ocean in order to survive and flourish.
Earth Touch USA and Oscura Productions Mexico are coproducing alongside Smithsonian Channel, and Earth Touch will handle the international distribution of the film worldwide. The project is made with the assistance of the Mexican film funding program EFICINE, supported by FEMSA.
“We plan to show the natural wonders of Mexico as never before,” said Phil Fairclough, executive producer for Earth Touch, in a statement. “Many people know Mexico as a vacation destination but don’t think of it as a remarkable wildlife hot spot. We are excited to reveal Mexico’s dazzling natural side.”
