Disney-owned National Geographic has acquired South African prodco Obsessively Creative’s Predator Land from content distributor DRG.

The 3 x 60-minute natural history docuseries explores the lives and habits of Africa’s most iconic predatory animals, including lions, leopards, wild dogs and cheetahs. It was shot in the Luangwa Valley, the Kalahari Desert and Kruger National Park.

Predator Land was produced by Obsessively Creative, with Mette Kanne-Behrendsen executive producing for DRG.

The deal was struck between DRG’s SVP of North and South America Scott Kirkpatrick and Lauren Billingsley, National Geographic’s manager of global acquisitions.

“National Geographic is the premier destination for wildlife content so we are delighted that Predator Land has been acquired and will be broadcast across its Nat Geo Wild network to more than 160 territories. Predator content is eternally popular, but new behaviors and the very latest in scientific research and thinking are vital to attract viewers,” said Kirkpatrick in a statement.

“In Predator Land, with its impeccable mix of stunning photography, new science and incredible predator behavior, Obsessively Creative has succeeded in producing a distinctive wildlife mini series that is destined to both inform and entertain audiences worldwide.”

Predator Land will launch on Nat Geo Wild in June.
