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 stories across multiple platforms will bring millions of people into intimate contact with some of the world's rarest animals and most precious natural habitats.
The series is being produced by Silverback Films, led by Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey, who created Planet Earth, Frozen Planet and Blue Planet for the BBC.
Our WWF network has operations in over 100 countries and over 5 million members. We can provide the Silverback team unparalleled access to our projects in protected areas around the world, to collaborate in creating innovative stories across all our media channels.
Our Planet will inspire millions of people around the world by showcasing the planet's most precious species and most fragile habitats through a visionary series and captivating multi-platform storytelling," said Colin Butfield, Executive Producer, WWF. "At this critical time for global conservation we are honoured to work with Silverback and Netflix on this completely unique collaboration."
"Our Planet is going to raise the bar for natural history landmarks," said Alastair Fothergill, Executive Producer, Silverback Films. "We will reveal the most amazing sights on Earth and show them in ways they have never been seen before. Partnering with Netflix and WWF gives us the ability to reach and enthuse global audiences with the wonder and importance of the natural world."
Lisa Nishimura, Vice President, Netflix Original Documentaries said. "Netflix is proud to be the global home for perhaps Silverback's most ambitious project to date.
