Co-production Doclights and BBC: wildlife series „The Hunt“

The NDR wildlife film department of DocLights GmbH has joined in as co-partner in the BBC series “The Hunt”. In seven episodes, the director of the famous series “Planet Earth”, Alastair Fothergill, will provide unique insights into the world of predatory animals. He works with enormous technical efforts in filming. In every episode, “The Hunt” focuses on hunting strategies in a particular habitat – Savannah, the jungle or the depths of the oceans. The high budget will allow long shooting periods for polar bears, lions and various other predators anywhere on Earth.

The series “The Hunt” is a production of Silverback Films, BBC Worldwide, BBC America, DocLights / NDR nature film, WDR and BR. In Germany, the series is expected to be broadcast in 2016 on ARD.
