PBS has slated its three-part docuseries produced with BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit, Life at the Waterhole, for mid-May.
The series explores the daily activities of African wildlife at a unique waterhole in Tanzania, rigged with partially submerged and weather-proofed cameras. Created by working with local Hadzabe and Maasai communities and hosted by renowned conservation scientist Dr. M. Sanjayan alongside award-winning wildlife cinematographer Bob Poole, the series bows May 19 and runs until June 2.
Series producer is Anwar Mamon. Executive producer is Roger Webb, and executive in charge for PBS is Bill Gardner.
PBS Digital Studios is also launching In Our Nature, a six-episode web series inspired by Life at the Waterhole, that explores what we know about the Serengeti, and what it says about ecosystems in North America. Hosted by Dr. Joe Hanson of PBS’s digital series It’s Okay to be Smart and produced by Spotzen, it was filmed on location in Tanzania and across the United States and will launch in the summer of 2021.
