DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, December 2017) Planet Earth: Blue Planet II, the next installment of BBCA's Emmy Award-winning Planet Earth, will premiere on Saturday, January 20, 9/8c, as an AMC Networks simulcast event across BBC AMERICA, AMC, IFC, WE tv and SundanceTV. Subsequent episodes will appear Saturday nights on BBC AMERICA. The new series*, presented by Sir David Attenborough, scored by Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer and produced by James Honeyborne has already become a major television event around the world. The series will premiere day-and-date in Canada on the BBC Earth Channel. Planet Earth: Blue Planet II takes viewers on a revelatory and magical journey into the mesmerizing world of our oceans - the most undiscovered place on our planet. Our oceans are by turn tempestuous and serene, exquisitely beautiful and bleakly forbidding. They cover 70% of the Earth's surface and hold 97% of all the water in the world. There is more life in the deep sea than anywhere else on Earth. It is said we know more about the surface of Mars than the depths of our own planet. Our final frontier is the deep ocean - Earth's 'inner space'. Ed Carroll, Chief Operating Officer of AMC Networks, said: "Planet Earth: Blue Planet II is rare, event television, an extraordinary series we are so proud to launch as a premiere simulcast across all five of our national networks. AMC Networks prides itself on being a premiere destination for extraordinary storytelling in all of its forms, and this remarkable exploration of our natural world from the BBC is storytelling at its finest." Sarah Barnett, President of BBC AMERICA, said: "This next chapter in BBC AMERICA's nature programming franchise is more incredible than anything yet seen, complete with heart-pounding exploration and incredible cinematography. The experience is a magical and transcendent trip into unexplored worlds."
