DEVELOPMENT STAGE:

DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, January 2020) Following Life Below Zero's fourth Emmy(R) last fall, global content leader BBC Studios and National Geographic partner on a three-series commitment deal that expands the Life Below Zero brand in the United States, Canada and Caribbean Basin. The deal includes an all-new eight-part spinoff series, Life Below Zero: Next Generation, which is slated to premiere on National Geographic in 2021 and will be produced by BBC Studios' Los Angeles production unit - the original creative and production team behind Life Below Zero. Life Below Zero: Next Generation will follow new individuals who, in a brave move, recently left their traditional lifestyle behind to face a challenging new world off the grid in the wilds of Alaska. The three-series commitment deal also includes two additional seasons of Life Below Zero and an additional season of Life Below Zero: Port Protection. The common theme in Life Below Zero and Life Below Zero: Port Protection is the cast of people who have left traditional society behind. They have chosen a different life, with varying degrees of danger and challenges, in the remote regions of Alaska. In Life Below Zero: Next Generation, the all-new cast members have tried contemporary life and rejected it in favor of a life of freedom in the brutal Alaskan wilderness. They speak to the growing dissatisfaction the current generation has with technologies, which is ubiquitous in modern life. The crew will capture the cast members as they rush to prepare for and survive the frozen months of winter to the spring thaw.
