"The Hunt" is a landmark natural history series on BBC America that is from the team behind the BBC's groundbreaking "Planet Earth."

Narrated by famed naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, the series uses character-driven stories to illustrate in dramatic detail the strategies predators use to catch their prey and those that the prey use to escape — with each episode based on one of our planet's key habitats. From open grasslands and dense forests to the arctic and the open ocean, the series will reveal the challenges predators and prey face in these very different worlds.

Many of the stories will show rarely seen animal behavior such as polar bears using meltwater pools in the ice to stalk seals, Arctic foxes leaping to catch auks mid-flight, and killer whales hunting humpback whale calves in tropical waters. The series will also feature animals that have rarely been filmed including the endangered South American marine otters. The final episode will take a fresh look at the state of our planet through the eyes of the top predators and the scientists and conservationists who are fighting to protect them.



Music is by award-winning composer, Steven Price, who won an Academy Award in 2014 for his score to "Gravity."

"The Hunt" is produced by Silverback Films for the BBC and co-produced by BBC America with BBC Worldwide and NDR Naturfilm. The series is executive produced by Alastair Fothergill with Huw Cordey serving as series producer. Tom McDonald is the Commissioning Editor for the BBC. BBC Worldwide is the global distributor of this series.
