Awards Spotlight: National Geographic - Hostile Planet
Hostile Planet, a six-part series executive produced by Academy Award-winning cinematographer and director Guillermo Navarro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Emmy-nominated producer Martha Holmes (The Blue Planet), Emmy Award-winning Tom Hugh-Jones (Planet Earth II) and BAFTA winner Bear Grylls (The Island), draws attention to the most extraordinary — almost supernatural — accounts of animals that have adapted to the cruelest evolutionary curveballs. Hosted by survivalist and adventurer Grylls, Hostile Planet zooms in on the world’s most extreme environments to reveal the animal kingdom’s epic stories of survival on this fast and continuously changing planet.
This is a drama told in an intimate manner with innovative camera technology and a lens that captures several first-ever behaviors. As animals face an overwhelming host of challenges including punishing weather, intense competition for resources and constant predator-vs.-prey conflict, life still finds a way.
