Love Nature, PBS & Arte explore climate change with ‘Evolution Earth’

Evolution Earth

Love Nature has partnered with PBS in the US and European broadcaster Arte on a five part natural history series that reveals how wildlife are adapting to new environments caused by climate change.

Evolution Earth (5 x 50 minutes) is being produced by Passion Planet and examines a raft of adaptation stories that illustrate the rapid pace of change happening across Earth, while providing a look at nature’s ability to thrive.

Using an “investigative podcast style of narration”, the show aims to dive into the ingenuity of wild species to adapt to bigger storms, longer droughts and warming oceans, while pointing to how humans may also need to adapt to the global changes around us.

The show will debut on Love Nature’s linear and streaming platforms around the world, as well as PBS in the US, Arte in France and Germany, and on Sky Nature in the UK and Italy. Blue Ant International oversees international licensing opportunities outside of commissioning territories.

Carlyn Staudt, global GM of Love Nature, said the show’s “fresh, conversational tone of the podcast-style narration” would ease audiences “into a discussion about the stories in a way that is truly engaging.”

Passion Planet’s David Allen directs and is series producer alongside Oliver Twinch, with James Manfull executive producing on behalf of Love Nature. Executive in charge for PBS is VP of multiplatform programming & head of development, Bill Gardner, while head of factual Hélène Coldefy is attached for Arte.
