Nat Geo to beef up programme line-up with three big shows

World’s deadliest animals, a road trip around the world with two Hollywood stars and a foodies’ guide to world cuisine – National Geographic India is out to cater to a varied audience with three new shows that would be launched over the next few months.

Rajesh Sheshadri, Senior Vice President – Content and Communication, National Geographic Channel India, said, “It is our constant endeavour to provide our viewers exclusive content which is innovative, intelligent and entertaining. With a truly phenomenal line-up, we are looking at promoting these shows innovatively through extensive on-air, on-ground and on-line activation, thus giving it a 360-degree approach for both our viewers and advertising partners.”

‘World’s Deadliest Animals’ is the first of the three planned shows, which premieres in July. The weekly series would traverse the entire globe over six episodes in search of the deadliest animals, covering Asia, Africa, and Australia. Home to an array of wild creatures, this world harbours the most predatory beasts.

‘Long Way Down’ will see Hollywood actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman take viewers on a road trip to explore the world like an adventurer. Traversing more than 24,000 km, McGregor and Boorman set off from the top of Scotland to the bottom tip of Africa. The series premieres in August and would cover the pair’s journey in 10 episodes spread over 10 weeks.

‘Food Lover’s Guide to the Planet’, the channel promises, would be a mouth watering food culture and travel show. The show would take viewers through some of the world’s best cuisines and their origin in a refreshingly new format. ‘Food Lover’s Guide to the Planet’ will air from September and would be a 10-episode series spread over 10 weeks.
