FilmRise announced a partnership with Wilderness Productions to stream 30-minute episodes of“Brave Wilderness,” the leading wildlife entertainment series on YouTube, to AVOD and SVOD platforms, including on the FilmRise Streaming Network.
Launched in 2014, 'Brave Wilderness' is hosted by wildlife experts Nathaniel 'Coyote' Peterson, Mark Vins and Mario Aldecoa. In the show, experts educate audiences by coming face-to-face with wild animals around the world and often share with viewers what it’s like to be bitten or stung by various reptiles and insects. The brand is followed by tens of millions on social media, with nearly 20 million subscribers on YouTube. FilmRise’s Digital Native Content division will create and curate half-hour episodes from Brave Wilderness’ popular channel, to expand viewership outside of YouTube and continue to raise awareness for the great outdoors.
Max Einhorn, SVP Acquisitions & Co-Productions comments, “We’re absolutely enamored by the weird and wild world Coyote and the 'Brave Wilderness' team inhabit, creating a family-friendly brand viewers will be excited to stream from their living rooms. We are excited to use our streaming expertise and infrastructure to help Wilderness Productions access new audiences, generate new revenue streams, and further build their business overall.”
Sedivy of Wilderness Productions states, “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with FilmRise, taking our series to AVOD, SVOD. Nature is a universal language, and we are thrilled to be able to offer ‘Brave Wilderness’ as a TV series to audiences around the world on streaming platforms.”
