Nat Geo WILD has greenlit “Dead by Dawn,” a new six-part series that brings horror to nature. From Skybound Entertainment (“The Walking Dead”) and Love Productions, “Dead by Dawn.,” the first-ever horror nature series, showcases the horror that is reality in the wild when the sun goes down. The logline: Each episode offers its own unique twist on horror, inspired by classic, modern and cult classic films, and uses innovative storytelling techniques to infuse suspense, tension and eeriness into the terrifyingly real stories of life in the wild … after dark.
“Dead by Dawn is a great example of how Nat Geo WILD continues to find new ways to showcase the real, incredible drama of the natural world, and we could not be more thrilled to collaborate with the creative minds at Skybound Entertainment and Love Productions on this exciting, edge-of-your-seat series,” said Janet Han Vissering, senior vice president of development and production at Nat Geo WILD. “Nature can often be more frightening than fiction, and I think viewers will find that this genre mashup of horror with natural history provides a refreshing and entertaining new look at the realities of life in the animal kingdom.”
“Dead by Dawn” will premiere in 140 countries and 38 languages.
