Life of Dogs in development for Discovery Channel
Discovery Network International's first major natural history commission, Life Of Dogs, is currently in development for the Discovery Channel. New DNI chief creative officer Phil Craig announced the show shortly after coming on board in February.Â
The series is set to be a mixture of traditional documentary analysis and storytelling. Life of Dogs will follow the species' natural history, looking at each breed and how they have developed a specific set of characteristics to aid them in living alongside human beings.
The show focuses on dogs at different stages of domestication for a complete overview of their development, from wild and worker dogs, domesticated pets and those released back into the wild.
The 5 x 60-minute show is produced by UK-based Plimsoll Productions with renowned natural history expert and filmmaker Dr. Martha Holmes at the helm.
