Arrow Media continues to grow its reach into popular animal and wildlife programming with a commission for more hours of its wildlife show Animal Fight Night premiering on August 18 at 9pm ET/PT on Nat Geo Wild in the U.S. and rolling out in September internationally.

The Nat Geo Wild series was first launched in the U.S. in October 2013 as a three-parter, with international roll-out three months later. The re-commission announced on July 29 sees the broadcaster extend the show’s run by a further six hour-long shows. Animal Fight Night marked Arrow Media’s first move into natural history programming, a move which has been successful for the indie and resulted in commissions for Building Penguin Paradise (Nat Geo Wild) and Dogs: Their Secret Lives (Channel 4).
