Nature Doc Predators To Be First Co-Production Between Netflix And Sky

Netflix and Sky are marking their first co-production with the nature documentary "Predators." The show "will follow six apex predators as they face the ultimate survival test in ever-changing landscapes." We've even got a trailer for you. Just look at the fuzzy little murder faces in the pic! Look at them! They might eat you for lunch, but they're the absolute cutest! 

"Predators" will be a six-part series and will premiere on Sky Nature in the U.K., Germany, and Italy in winter 2022, though we don't have a date for the Netflix premiere. I want it now, Netflix! Give me my fuzzy murder cats! It's not just cats though. We're getting all sorts of predators in the series. Fun fact: I petted some cheetahs once on a set visit and they make these little squeak noises that will melt your heart as the blood drains out of it. It's the most adorable way to die. Just look at the bloody kitten face in the trailer. 

Pumas, Lions, and Bears, Oh My!

Nature documentaries can be hard to watch, but as you see a polar bear kill something in "Predators," I want you to think about the recent story about how polar bears are living in abandoned houses on an island on a small island between Russia and Alaska. They hang out on the porch with their polar bear buddies! 

"Predators" was announced alongside the news that Sky Documentaries has produced the original film "Gabon (w/t)" about a scientist from Manchester who became the Environment Minister of Central African country Gabon after becoming friends with the president. In addition, Sky Crime has announced "Death on the Beach" about the number of young travelers dead under mysterious circumstances on the Thai island of Koh Tao.
