“We are beyond excited to work with such amazing partners as Plan B and Atlas Obscura,” said Root in a statement. “At Nutopia we focus on developing projects that will bring high-quality, out-of-this-world content to viewers, and we look forward to what this new series has in store for our audiences.”
