MIPCOM, Cannes – The high-end factual production company, announces it has been commissioned by Zee Entertainment Enterprises LTD (ZEEL) and Smithsonian Channel to produce Life of Earth: From Space and Life of Earth: The Age of Humans. This spectacular two-hour 4K/UHD feature documentary delves into the planet’s extraordinary 4.5 billion-year old history as never seen before, from the unique vantage point of space.

This is a world-first collaboration between Talesmith, ZEEL and the Smithsonian Channel. This is the first foray for ZEEL into the blue-chip specialist factual genre.

The incredible journey is full of surprise and wonder – from the moon’s influence imprinted within our DNA to the dust storms that shape weather, and of course the surprising ways humanity has influenced the planet in the last few million years.
