Even the title suggests that it’s not your grandparents’ nature show. Airing on Monday nights, National Geographic Channel’s “Hostile Planet” tells its stories from the point of view of the animals it chronicles, with an emphasis on their sometimes brutal struggle for survival.

TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin takes us behind the scenes of the six-episode series to hear from executive producer Guillermo Navarro, producer and director Sophie Morgan and others involved in the project, which is narrated and hosted by adventure show icon Bear Grylls.
