Love Nature and Sky Nature have greenlighted "Airborne" (4x60’), a visually stunning series produced by Humble Bee Films, that celebrates the unique challenges and ultimate freedom of animals that use the air to survive and thrive. The series gives viewers a true bird’s-eye view from airborne birds and animals as they catch air for the first time, snatch in-flight meals, navigate crowded skies and soar through the most challenging environments on the planet.

Blue Ant Studios’ rights division will oversee pre-sales and licensing outside of commissioning territories and the series to roll out on Love Nature globally and Sky Nature in the U.K., Germany and Italy.

"Airborne" offers an astonishing and revelatory adventure into the wonderfully diverse world of creatures that fly, glide and leap through the air. The series follows a diverse array of charismatic creatures through their trials and triumphs. From great soaring condors to leaping lemurs, and from gliding squirrels to beautifully buzzing orchid bees —the series reveals unexpected and fascinating stories of animals who defy gravity and master the air around them in extraordinary ways.

Poppy Dixon, Director of Documentaries and Factual at Sky said: “We look to commission exceptional natural history programming that reveals a new lens on our planet. Taking to the air, we are excited to be offering our audiences a thrilling new perspective on the world around us, which we know they will love.”

Partnering with Sky Nature on this ambitious project allows us the scale to capture breathtaking footage and stories to make this world-class, blue-chip series. We’re also thrilled to deepen our existing content partnership with Sky,” said Carlyn Staudt, General Manager, Love Nature & Head of Commissioning, Global Media, Blue Ant Media. “The immersive and innovative footage of animals in flight, illustrates Love Nature’s commitment to unlocking fresh and compelling perspectives of wildlife that appeal to audiences around the world.”

“Humble Bee Films is delighted to be working with Love Nature and Sky Nature to produce this immersive natural history series. For many animals, the ability to defy gravity and launch into the air is crucial to their survival and our specialist camera teams will take the viewer right alongside as we go airborne,” said Stephen Dunleavy, Executive Producer, Humble Bee Films.
