National Geographic Greenlights ‘Extraordinary Birder’ Hosted By Christian Cooper

National Geographic has given the greenlight to a new nonfiction series “Extraordinary Birder,” hosted by lifelong birder Christian Cooper.

Here are additional details about the series:

EXTRAORDINARY BIRDER (Lucky 8) — Life-long birder Christian Cooper takes us into the wild, wonderful and unpredictable world of birds. Whether braving stormy seas in Alaska for puffins, trekking into rainforests in Puerto Rico for parrots, or scaling a bridge in Manhattan for a peregrine falcon, he does whatever it takes to learn about these extraordinary feathered creatures and show us the remarkable world in the sky above.

For Lucky 8, George Kralovansky, Irfan Rahman, Kimberly Woodard, Jon Kroll and Doug Veith are executive producers. For National Geographic, Pam Caragol is executive producer, and Janet Vissering is senior vice president of development and production.

In addition to “Extraordinary Birder,” National Geographic announced 5 other nonfiction series including Dance The World With Derek Hough, a series which takes viewers on a global cultural journey of the origins of some of the most popular dance styles; Restaurants At The End Of The World, hosted by chef and entrepreneur Kristen Kish; an untitled series with adventurer and travel blogger Jeff Jenkins; Farming Is Life, with urban gardener and influencer Indy Srinath; and Science Fair: The Series, from the directors and producers of the Emmy-winning documentary film Science Fair, featuring high school competitors of a global science fair competition.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with this exciting new ensemble of National Geographic storytellers, sharing their captivating journeys with fans all around the world,” said National Geographic Content President Courteney Monroe. “Whether its exploring Derek’s passion for dance on a global scale, traveling with Kristen on culinary adventures in remote locales or simply being awed by the infectious enthusiasm of our Science Fair kids, all of these new shows represent the very best of National Geographic and our desire to ignite people’s curiosity in our world.”

The new series will premiere on one of National Geographic’s linear channels or on Disney+, with all eventually landing permanently at Disney+ under the National Geographic brand tile.
