Planet Earth Creators Turn To Netflix For New Docu-Series Our Planet
The creators of Planet Earth, The Blue Planet and Frozen Planet are to make their next series on Netflix, rather than the BBC.
The new series will be called Our Planet and will premiere in 2019.
Silverback Films other work Planet Earth holds the title of being the most expensive documentary ever commissioned by the BBC and was filmed using 4k cameras – the same kind of cameras that were used to film epic fantasy trilogy films The Hobbit. The absolutely stunning visuals were accompanied by the narration of national treasure David Attenborough. It took five years to make. It was nominated for four BAFTA Awards and four Emmy Awards, not to mention a Brit for George Fenton’s score.
