All3Media’s Optomen Productions has entered a co-production partnership with the National Wildlife Federation, a U.S. conservation nonprofit, to develop formats and docuseries.

Content, focused on the organization’s key conservation stories, will be produced for U.S. networks, international broadcasters and streaming platforms, and will feature the federation’s in-house talent, including naturalist and media personality David Mizejewski (pictured).

Mizejewski frequently appears on talk shows such as Today, The Wendy Williams Show, Conan and Ellen. He also co-hosted the Animal Planet series Backyard Habitat, as well as NatGeo Wild’s Pet Talk series.

The National Wildlife Federation team will work closely with Maria Silver, president of Optomen, as well as George McTeague, senior vice president of development, and Kristin Wendell, vice president of development.

“This partnership allows us the unique opportunity to tap into their incredible talent pool and rich diversity of compelling and entertaining stories,” Silver said in a release. “More importantly, we’re hopefully creating a larger platform for their ethos to continue making real change for America’s conservation effort.”
