Fred Media’s highly successful The Wild Life of Tim Faulkner will be back for another season on the Nine Network.
The Wild Life of Tim Faulkner
The Wild Life of Tim Faulkner follows the busy schedule of Australian Reptile Park General Manager Tim Faulkner, as he tackles the daily challenges of running one of Australia’s most action packed wildlife parks.
Distributed by Fred Media, Series 2 (20 x 30’) will see Tim Faulkner hatching baby alligators, tagging rock wallabies, releasing turtles and travelling deep into the Australian outback in search of rare and bizarre species to tick off his ‘bucket list’.
Also, in this series, it’s time to meet Tim’s young son Bill, as he shares his dad’s passion for wildlife conservation. One of his first lessons is the challenge of ‘how to train your Komodo dragon’.
Tim’s infectious enthusiasm for wildlife is not only a huge hit with audiences in Australia, but now also around the world.
Series 1 has seen continuous growth, selling into over 160 territories in less than 12 months.
Nine Network’s Director of Acquisitions, Hamish Turner said, “After a positive response to The Wild Life of Tim Faulkner (Series 1), we are pleased Tim has returned to the Nine Network for a second home grown series that continues to document his important conservation efforts to an Australian audience.”
Fred Media’s General Manager, Michael Aldrich said, “We have been blown away with the success of Tim’s series in such a short time. It confirms that top quality productions with thoughtful story telling continue to resonate with audiences around the world. It is especially exciting to see a return season on the Nine Network.”
The new series will premiere on Nine Network this August and be presented at MIPCOM in Cannes, France as part of Fred Media’s growing factual catalogue.
