While we’re used to watching fictional representations of the wild, filled with talking animals, Discovery Channel’s new nature documentary series is all real — and drama-packed.
“Serengeti” is a six-part series that will take viewers into the plains of Tanzania to see what it’s like to live as lion, zebra, baboon, and cheetah in a habitat that’s relatively untouched by humans.
Viewers will meet creatures like Kali, a lioness struggling to raise her cubs on her own, and Tembo, a young male elephant taking the next step on his journey to adulthood.
The series was created and produced by Emmy-winner Simon Fuller and directed and produced by Emmy-winning wildlife filmmaker John Downer.
Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o narrates the series.
“Serengeti” premieres August 4 on the Discovery Channel.
