ANIMAL PLANET AND COYOTE PETERSON ANNOUNCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF FIRST LONG-FORM TELEVISION SERIES FOR YOUTUBE STAR

- Wilderness Productions in Line to Produce for Animal Planet New Original Series Chronicling Animal Expert, Adventurer, and YouTube Star Coyote Peterson-

Animal Planet announced today that it is exclusively working with Coyote Peterson to develop a new long-form TV series featuring wild expeditions and rare up-close animal experiences. The series will premiere on Animal Planet in 2019 and will appeal to Peterson's established 13 million-strong "Coyote Pack" as well as Animal Planet's global audience.

Passionate about wildlife education and host of the much-loved Brave Wilderness channel on YouTube (13M subscribers), Coyote brings the animal kingdom up close for the next wave of explorers in an entertaining way, while promoting compassion and welfare for the natural world. For his Animal Planet series, Coyote will travel to all new destinations and share his experiences with the most fascinating, bizarre, and iconic animals on earth. Together with his crew, which includes director Mark Vins and wildlife biologist Mario Aldecoa, they will share their breathtaking adventures.

"Coyote is curious, fearless and very passionate about animals and animal conservation, inspiring a whole new generation of animal enthusiasts," said Kurt Tondorf, Animal Planet's Senior Vice President of Development. "We are delighted Coyote's bringing his infectious enthusiasm and knowledge to Animal Planet. We look forward to sharing his new animal adventures with his "Coyote Pack" of fans and our audiences across all screens around the globe."

"My entire life I have been fascinated with animals and my goal has always been to share this passion with the rest of the world," said Coyote. "Producing a series for Animal Planet is a dream come true, and their global platform will allow us to proudly promote a message of education and a continued drive toward the conservation of countless animal species. This is the big leagues for us, and not only are we excited, but we have never been more ready for the journey ahead!"

"The road leading to this opportunity has been paved in grit, determination, friendship, and most of all, a profound enthusiasm for what we love to do: sharing our wildlife adventures with the world," said Vins. "Now that we've partnered with Animal Planet, we will have the honor of doing so from the biggest stage for nature programs, and we couldn't be more excited."

Through the Brave Wilderness channel on YouTube, Coyote has hosted various adventure series including, the 2015 Emmy Award-winning "Breaking Trail", "Beyond the Tide", "On Location", "Dragon Tales" and the upcoming Universal Pictures "Jurassic World Explorers" digital franchise set to debut November 18 exclusively on YouTube. His first book, Coyote Peterson's Brave Adventures: Wild Animals in a Wild World! (Mango Media - 2017), was #1 Bookscan in Juvenile Non-fiction; and his upcoming second book, Coyote Peterson: The King of Sting! (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers), will be available everywhere books are sold beginning November 27.
