True to Nature is in production on a 26-part children’s show One Zoo Three, which will air on CBBC.
Scheduled for transmission in 2022, each 22-minute show goes the behind-the-scenes to record antics of brothers Cam, Tyler and Aaron, who together run the Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire and work at the Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent.
Shot over a period of 12 months, the series follows their daily adventures. Having grown up with many of the exotic animals that share their home, the brothers have a special connection with the animal residents.
Conservation and animal welfare is at the heart of everything they do and they also check out some of the latest projects happening around the globe and hear the emotional stories from those working to protect animals at risk of extinction.
True to Nature has filmed the arrival of Cletus, a West African Dwarf Crocodile at the zoo. One of the world’s smallest species of crocodile, it’s currently listed as vulnerable, and the brothers hope to find him a mate over the coming year.
The themed episodes also delve deeper into animals’ behaviour, diets, and physiology through a series of new strands. Animal expert Aaron will test the audience’s knowledge through Fact or Fake, in Whose Poo?
The ONE ZOO THREE new series is a True To Nature Production for CBBC in the UK and available for international distribution through Sky Studios/NBCUniversal.
NBCUniversal Global Distribution handle international sales of the series on behalf of Sky Studios.
Executive Producer is Wendy Darke and Series Producer is Tim Duck.
