Nat Geo Wild has greenlit a horror-focused nature series from The Great British Bake Off creator Love Productions and Skybound Entertainment, the team behind The Walking Dead.
The six-part genre-bending series will look at the wild world when the sun goes down. Each episode features wildlife in a different country – from Costa Rica to Indonesia – with a twist on horror, inspired by classic, modern, and cult classic films; accompanied by innovative storytelling techniques that showcase the terrifyingly real stories of wild life after dark.
Once the sun sets, creatures of the night battle for survival, with only the strongest and luckiest living to see sunrise.
For Skybound Entertainment, executive producers are Bryan and Sean Furst, Robert Kirkman and David Alpert. For Love Productions, executive producers are Richard McKerrow, Kevin Bartel and Devon Massyn, and co-executive producers are Jeff Garcia, Ben Haslup and Myke Clarkson.
Dead By Dawn is slated to premiere on Nat Geo Wild in January 2019 in 140 countries and 38 languages.
