David Attenborough and Netflix team up for new series ‘Our Planet’

David Attenborough and Netflix team up for new series ‘Our Planet’

Sir David Attenborough and Netflix are teaming up for a brand new series called Our Planet, which will premiere in April 2019.

The programme, produced by Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey, will be an eight-part series and has taken four years to make. A crew of over 600 people travelled to over 50 countries across the globe to complete the series. Both Fothergill and Scholey have previously worked with Attenborough on BBC productions Blue Planet and Planet Earth.

Fothergill said, “Our Planet is our most ambitious endeavour to date. We hope it will inspire and delight hundreds of millions of people across the world so they can understand our planet, and the environmental threat it faces, as never before. The crew have ventured to all corners of the globe to capture breathtaking natural history sequences and were using the latest filming technology to bring these never-filmed-before moments into people’s homes.”

This has been a huge financial investment for Netflix, but Colin Bufield, an executive producer on the show said, “I can’t think of a better platform that will reach that many people at the same time. For this particular one, it’s all about having that global moment. It’s hard to get a programme on lots of national broadcasters at the same time. Whether it’s London or Delhi or Rio or Washington, we want it out at exactly the same time.”

David Attenborough has fronted many nature shows over the years, particularly for the BBC, and has been vocal about our responsibility to tackle climate change, “Today we have become the greatest threat to the health of our home but there’s still time for us to address the challenges we’ve created if we act now. We need the world to pay attention.”

He promised viewers they will be embarking on a “spectacular journey of discovery showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world.”
