Discovery Communications-owned network Discovery en Español is set to premiere its six-part animal behavioral series Sobrevivir on October 18.

A copro between BBC, Discovery Channel and France Télévisions, in association with The Open University, the series will provide an in-depth look at the cycle of life from the perspective of individual animals in their natural habitats.

Filmed in 29 countries on six continents and narrated by Mexican actor Enrique Rocha (pictured), Sobrevivir will follow each highlighted species (humpback whales to Australian peacock spiders) from the moment they take their first steps, learn to survive without their parents, take cover from predators, and find a mate to procreate and produce offspring.

Mike Gunton, Rupert Barrington and Sarah Spaniolo serve as series producers.

Sobrevivir will air on October 18 at 8 p.m. EST/PST across Discovery en Español.
