The previously announced David Attenborough-fronted Seven Worlds, One Planet series has been slated to air as a multi-network event Jan. 18, 2020 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC Networks’ BBC America, AMC, IFC and SundanceTV.
Seven Worlds, One Planet, the latest series in BBC’s Planet franchise, reveals how each of the seven continents shaped the unique animal life found there.
The first episode will take viewers across North America, from prowling lynx in the Yukon to river chub building underwater pyramids in Tennessee.
Additional episodes include South America (Jan. 25), Asia (Feb. 1), Australia (Feb. 8), Europe (Feb. 15), Antarctica (Feb. 22) and Africa (Feb. 29).
Seven Worlds, One Planet is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, coproduced with BBC America, Tencent Penguin Pictures, ZDF, France Télévisions and China Media Group CCTV9.
A special presentation of the Seven Worlds, One Planet Antarctica episode aired Nov. 2 on BBC America as part of the launch of Wonderstruck, the network’s natural history programming block.
“Every year these landmark BBC series seem more resonant and the spellbinding Seven Worlds, One Planet is no exception. BBC Studios Natural History Unit are the best in the world at making nature programming that inspires a love and fascination for nature, and a deep sense of human connectedness to the planet we all share,” Sarah Barnett, president of entertainment networks at AMC Studios and AMC Networks, said in a statement.
BBC America most recently commissioned the six-part series Eden (w/t), followed by the renewal earlier this year of its partnership with the BBC to coproduce Planet Earth III and Frozen Planet II.
