European networks land on BBC’s ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’

Seven Worlds, One Planet

SVT in Sweden, Denmark’s DR, Telefonica in Spain and Norway’s NRK are among a raft of broadcasters to have struck pre-sale deals for BBC Studios’ natural history show Seven Worlds, One Planet.

The show, which has been created by BBCS’ Natural History Unit and is narrated by Sir David Attenborough, has also been picked up by Czech Republic duo Prima and Czech TV, while Discovery in Latin America has taken the show as part of an existing multi-year partnership.

Seven Worlds, One Planet features unseen animal behaviour from all the continents, showcasing life at the extremes. It is being co-produced by BBC America, China’s Tencent Penguin, ZDF, France Télévisions and China Media Group CCTV9.

Sony BBC Earth in India and BBC Earth channels across Africa, Canada, Nordics, Asia, MEDME, Poland and CEE will also be premiering the series.

Paul Dempsey, president of global distribution for BBCS, said: “The appetite for blue chip series from BBC Studios’ natural history unit gets greater every year. Planet Earth II, Blue Planet II and then Dynasties all broke viewing records and captivated audiences across the world.

“Now we are seeing more and more buyers wanting to be a part of the success story, and we are delighted to partner with them on our next exciting chapter.”
