Discovery Networks Western Europe has commissioned a six-part, 3D natural history/exploration series, to be produced by UK indie Electric Sky.

Lost Worlds with Monty Halls and Leo Houlding (6 x 1 hour) will follow the ex-Royal Marine and the renowned climber as they use the latest technology and climbing techniques to explore some of the world’s most remote areas in search of undiscovered species of animal and plant life.

“Leo and Monty are not just exploring the unknown in Lost Worlds, but truly getting to grips with the ecology and wildlife that surrounds them,” said Helen Hawken, director of production, factual, for Discovery Networks Western Europe, in a statement. “They reach the heart of these dangerous locations, home to some of the greatest natural wonders, stunning landscapes and extraordinary creatures.”

The series will premiere simultaneously across Western Europe and Discovery Channel in the UK and on Sky 3D at the end of the year. Lost Worlds with Monty Halls and Leo Houlding was commissioned by Hawken and Dan Korn, SVP & head of programming, Discovery Networks Western Europe. David Pounds and Rod Caird are executive producers from Electric Sky, with Tom Gorham the exec producer for Discovery.
