Animal Planet to unveil an unusual soap opera on ‘Lemur Street’

So you thought nothing could better the saas-bahu soaps and their ‘kitchen politics’? Wait till you see these 20-inch tall stars with spectacular black and white tails and huge round eyes. Animal Planet is premiering a 20-part series, ‘Lemur Street’, on February 18 at 9 pm. And this is no ordinary animal documentary with just breath-taking shots and a straightforward narrative of food habits, life cycle, breeding and habitat.

‘Lemur Street’ will follow two rival gangs of Lemurs of Madagascar, named ‘Tornado Troop’ and ‘Graveyard Gang’ by the Animal Planet team, as they defend their respective territories, often involved in violent clashes and numerous border infringements. And all this would unfold in a soap opera format.

Shot over a period of one year, ‘Lemur Street’ has all the makings of a riveting soap opera with the two gangs led by dominating female leads. And as in the human world, the series tracks the happenings in their lives – bringing up the young ones, the males in their lives, battle strategies, in-fighting, interpersonal relationships, protecting the gang from natural prey like eagles, human intrusions. There is never a dull moment in their lives.
