Apple TV+ Earth Day Round-Up

Apple TV+ will premiere the 10-part documentary series Big Beasts on April 21.

From the acclaimed creative team of the Apple TV+ award-winning Tiny World, it was filmed over four-and-a-half years across 17 countries.

It features some of the world’s most massive species filmed, including the grey whale, the elephant seal, the giant otter, the gorilla, the hippopotamus, the brown bear, the ostrich, the orangutan, the tiger and the polar bear.

Viewers will see that it’s not easy being big—the larger the animal, the greater the challenges they face—as the series captures rare and first-ever footage using specialised equipment and next-generation filming techniques.

The series will debut just in time for Earth Day, with two new episodes premiering each week until May 19.

Landing a week earlier will be Jane, a 10-episode “mission-driven” series for kids and families inspired by the work of world renowned ethologist and conservationist, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace.

Ava Louise Murchison (Reacher) stars as Jane Garcia, a nine-year-old budding environmentalist on a quest to save endangered animals.

Using her powerful imagination, she takes her best friends David (Shameless’ Mason Blomberg) and Greybeard the chimpanzee on epic adventures to help protect wild animals all around the world because, according to her idol Dr. Jane Goodall, “Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help, can they be saved.”).

“I believe that stories have the power to inspire people to action,” Goodall says. “I am very hopeful that this series will encourage young people, their families, and friends to help save animals around the world.”
