Smithsonian Channel, a joint venture between Showtime and the Smithsonian Institution, is to explore the canine family tree in Offspring Films’ three-part series Amazing Dogs.

Hosted by biologist Patrick Aryee, Amazing Dogs will journey the world to study all 34 canine species and ventures back more than 30 million years ago to when the first canines evolved in an attempt to discover how dogs helped change the course of human history.

The three-parter will travel to the jungles of Brazil, the deserts of Africa and the plains of North America to examine all varieties of man’s best friend, from the Arctic fox to South America’s maned wolves.

Amazing Dogs is executive produced by Alex Williamson and Isla Robertson for Offspring Films. Joy Galane and David Royle serve as executive producers for Smithsonian Channel.

Amazing Dogs premieres July 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
