*CASTING ANNOUNCEMENT*

NAT GEO WILD REVEALS THE LEAD ROLE IN UPCOMING FOUR-HOUR REALITY EVENT "FISH BOWL"

FISH BOWL Premieres Super Bowl Sunday - Feb. 2, from 6 PM to 10 PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD

(WASHINGTON, D.C. - January 10, 2014) From the award-winning team that launched the careers of The Dog Whisperer and The Incredible Dr. Pol, Nat Geo WILD is proud to announce the latest face of the network - "Goldie." New to the Hollywood scene, this up-and-coming "actor," who also happens to be a goldfish, snagged the leading role in Fish Bowl, the highly anticipated four-hour reality special premiering Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (For more information, visit www.natgeowild.com and follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/NGC_PR.)

Venerable household goldfish Goldie is excited for her big break to star in the event of the year on Super Bowl Sunday, stating, "I'm comfortable in my own scales and have no doubt the Fish Bowl will be the talk of the town." Sure, puppies are cute, kittens are ok and football ... well, as Goldie likes to say, "It's just another day in the Bowl." Predatory cats, canines and field goals are just the beginning. This remarkable little goldfish handles whatever the tides throw at her - food, a scuba diver, crazy red crabs, erupting volcanoes, even a surprise visit from Dr. Pol and Cesar Millan.

The controversial decision to offer the lead to a newcomer was an easy one, explains Geoff Daniels, EVP and General Manager of Nat Geo WILD. "Goldie showed such promise in early casting auditions that we felt confident in the aquatic wonder's ability to entertain and captivate an audience, for four long hours, on a relatively young network, while the most-watched television event of the year just happens to be taking place."

In the vein of other reality series, where the daily drama of a character's life plays out in a "fishbowl" setting, Goldie will swim about her daily business in an actual fishbowl. Without filters and with remarkable candor, Goldie navigates through an average day in the life of a goldfish. When asked how this stacks up to her competition, Goldie offered, "Can Bruno Mars pack all of that into his halftime show? Right, I didn't think so, blub, blurb, bubble."
