Silverback Films teams with Netflix and WWF to create Our Planet, a landmark eight-part series combining the spectacular photography of Planet Earth with an unprecedented look at the Planet’s remaining wilderness areas and their animal Inhabitants to debut in 2019.
Netflix, the world’s leading Internet TV network, will premiere across all its territories in 2019 in collaboration with Silverback Films and WWF.
The ambitious four year project – the largest of its kind ever attempted – will take viewers into never-before-filmed wilderness areas from the ice caps and deep ocean to deserts and remote forests, introducing them to the most precious species and places that must withstand the impact of humanity so generations to come can enjoy the bounties of the natural world. Using the latest in 4K camera technology, the series and a range of specially produced storytelling for multi-media platforms will bring millions of people into intimate contact with some of the world’s rarest animals and most precious natural habitats.
WWF, the world’s leading conservation organization with operations in more than 100 countries and over 5 million members, is providing the Silverback team unparalleled access to its projects in protected areas around the world and will collaborate on multi-media storytelling across its web and other platforms.
