Discovery Announces New Series ‘Serengeti’

Six Episodes Ordered

Discovery Channel will launch six-part series “Serengeti” from “American Idol” creator Simon Fuller and wildlife film maker John Downer. The series follows the heartwarming stories of a cast of African wildlife over the course of a year that showcase the dramatic moments that make each day of survival on the Serengeti a feat.

The logline: Set to the backdrop of original music, this television experience combines Africa’s unimaginable beauty with its equally unforgiving brutality, highlighting daily challenges of life on the Serengeti –  such as a lioness trying to provide for her small cubs after being exiled from her pride – and witness firsthand how the animal experience isn’t so different from our own.
