A star on YouTube will be stepping up to long-form television with a new series after entering into an agreement with Animal Planet.
The cable channel announced plans today to develop a series with Coyote Peterson featuring wild expeditions and rare up-close animal experiences. Animal Planet says the series, which will premiere on the channel in 2019, 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,” Animal Planet says in today’s announcement. “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.”
