NHNZ’s Archive Unit gets Greenlight for 12 Hours of Premium Content

NHNZ’s dedicated Archive Unit has received a greenlight from Nat Geo Wild International for 12 hours of natural history content.

The slate includes the second season of the Unit’s Wild 24, an original series following 24 hours in one geographical location per episode, and the first season of an original series Extreme Animals: Babies (WT), which will countdown the most extreme juvenile behaviour in the animal kingdom.

The Archive Unit has had over 30 hours of production greenlit since launching in mid-2014, including one-off specials and original series, in addition to contributing to several highly successful and established archive anthologies.

NHNZ Managing Director Kyle Murdoch says The Archive Unit’s success is driven by NHNZ’s 15-year legacy of creating clever clip shows: a legacy that began with 76 episodes of the hit series The Most Extreme.

 “The team we have working on these programs are experts at crafting wonderful and innovative stories out of blue-chip footage.”

Wild 24 – series 2 and Extreme Animals: Babies (WT) will be distributed by Fox International Channels Content Sales.
