DESCRIPTION:
(from Disney+'s press release, September 2020) "Meet the Chimps" takes viewers into the secret life of one of the largest and most unique wildlife sanctuaries in the world - Chimp Haven - a 200-acre refuge tucked deep in the forested heart of Louisiana, which is home to more than 300 chimpanzees. Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch, this six-part series, from National Geographic, tracks the ups and downs of this extraordinary group of chimps that are given a second chance at life by a staff whose dedication, compassion and commitment knows no bounds. Through a seamless blend of natural history and observational-documentary filmmaking, "Meet the Chimps" puts the chimps - the heart and soul of the series - at front and center. A real-life drama with a full emotional range, the series gives unparalleled access to everything happening at Chimp Haven, including food squabbles, alliances, romances, 'bromances', tears, tantrums, high jinxes and heartbreaks.
