Discovery Kids Asia greenlights new kids’ edutainment series
Singapore – Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific (DNAP) has announced that it has greenlit a new kids’ edutainment series titled Wild But True, which will feature Robert Irwin, nine-year-old son of the original crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, in his first international television premiere.
Robert will be joined by co-host Shania Bhopa, a 15-year-old student from Toronto, Canada. The 13-part series is a DNAP co-production with Toronto-based CCI Entertainment Ltd. It is scheduled to premiere in the third quarter of 2014 on Discovery Kids across Asia.
Targeting school-age kids between 6 and 12, Wild But True explores the fun of biomimicry – an exciting branch of science that studies nature’s most clever inventions and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems. Wild But True explores thought-provoking questions such as: How did the kingfisher inspire Japan’s bullet train? What can a termite mound show us about cooling our towering skyscrapers? Can the humble butterfly help us make better smartphones?
