Apple TV+ is set to premiere a trio of douseries this fall from UK producers Plimsoll Productions, Wall to Wall Media and Offspring Films.

Narrated by actor Paul Rudd, Tiny World (pictured) explores the “ingenuity and resilience” of the smallest animals on the planet. Produced by Plimsoll Productions, the first six episodes of the series premiere Oct. 2.

Tiny World is written and executive produced by Tom Hugh Jones. Martha Holmes and Grant Mansfield also serve as executive producers on behalf of Plimsoll Productions.

The Wall to Wall Media-produced Becoming You, meanwhile, is a global child development series that examines how the first 2,000 days on Earth helped “shape the rest of our lives.”

Narrated by actress Olivia Colman, the series is told through the eyes of more than 100 children across the world, from Nepal to Japan to Borneo. Each episode offers a look at how children learn to think, speak and move from birth to the age of five.

The series is executive produced by Leanne Klein and Hamo Forsyth. Becoming You will premiere with its first six episodes on Nov. 13.

Finally, the landmark natural history series Earth At Night In Colour will use “next-generation cameras” to reveal the nocturnal lives of animals, in color. Narrated by actor Tom Hiddelston, the series was filmed across six continents, from the Arctic Circle to the African grasslands.

Earth At Night In Colour is produced by Offspring Films. The series is executive produced by Alex Williamson and Isla Robertson, and produced by Sam Hodgson. The first six episodes will premiere Dec. 4.

The three docuseries will join the streamer’s growing lineup of non-scripted titles, including the recently announced motorcycle series Long Way Up, starring and executive produced by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, and feature documentary Fireball, from filmmaker Werner Herzog and professor Clive Oppenheimer.
