THE REBELLION BEGINS ON BLACK FRIDAY

NAT GEO WILD'S "SAVAGE KINGDOM: UPRISING" CONTINUES TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF WILDLIFE STORYTELLING

The Return of Miniseries Event Savage Kingdom: Uprising Premieres on Black Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, 9/8c

(WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 18, 2017) - Last season The Wall Street Journal called Savage Kingdom "nature television as Shakespearean drama." This season brings rebellion as the sins of the lion king are carried out by his sons. Nat Geo WILD's Savage Kingdom returns with Savage Kingdom: Uprising, a four-part global miniseries series event that tells an unvarnished tale of survival on the African plains. No better night to debut this competitive savagery than Black Friday.

Savage Kingdom: Uprising premieres Friday, Nov. 24, 9/8c on Nat Geo WILD and globally in 140 countries and 37 languages. For more information, visit www.natgeowild.com, or our press site www.natgeotvpressroom.com, or follow us on Twitter using @NGC_PR.

Emmy-nominated actor Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones") returns to narrate Savage Kingdom: Uprising, a rare look at warring animal clans battling for survival in a remote region of Africa that is drying up after years of flood-soaked abundance. The winners are rewarded with the richest hunting grounds in the kingdom, while the losers are fated to exile ... or even death.

"When we introduced the world to the Savage Kingdom last year, it was our version of a real-life 'Game of Thrones' that pushed serialized dramatic storytelling in this genre to the next level," said Geoff Daniels, executive vice president and general manager, Nat Geo WILD. "No spoilers, but rest assured the new season is as visually stunning, intimate and intense as anything we have ever done."

Savage Kingdom: Uprising returns to the remote wilderness of Africa to delve deeper into the individual characters and reveals the life and death decisions that drive survival in their ruthless and unpredictable world. The story continues as sons plot to overthrow fathers, clans seek revenge on their enemies and new arrivals enter the Savage Kingdom to stake their claim.

Will the aging lion king Sekekama hold on to his bloody crown? Has the leopard prince Neo inherited enough talent from his mother to survive? How will the lions of the Northern Pride wreak their revenge on queen Matsumi? Leaders will rise and factions will fall. No one is safe in the Savage Kingdom.

Savage Kingdom Premieres:

Savage Kingdom: Uprising: The Enemy Within Premieres Friday, Nov. 24 at 9/8c Male lion Sekekama, the undisputed king of the Marsh Pride, must contend with his three eldest sons who are hungry for power. On the outskirts of their territory, the Northern Pride is growing a bloodthirsty lion army, preparing for revenge against its sworn enemy. Meanwhile, the kingdom's deadliest leopard assassin, Saba, works tirelessly to make sure her only son follows in her deadly footsteps.

Savage Kingdom: Uprising: First Blood Premieres Friday, Dec. 1 at 9/8c Neo must prepare for life as a solitary assassin, but his future hangs in the balance when his mother is left seriously injured after fighting for their fortress.

Meanwhile, on the edges of the Marsh, the vengeful Northern queens suffer a cruel blow to their growing pride when their drifter king returns.

Savage Kingdom: Uprising: Reign of Traitors Premieres Friday, Dec. 8 at 9/8c The Marsh Pride reaches its breaking point as Sekekama struggles to suppress the rebellion of his three treacherous sons and protect his kingdom. As the Great Marsh withers in the grip of the dry season, Zalika, the hyena queen, raises new troops to prepare for her moment of triumph. And the vagabond Pale Pack of wild dogs fights for survival, driven to desperate lengths for food.

The last episode of Savage Kingdom: Uprising premieres on the last day of Nat Geo WILD's Big Cat Week, running Sun, Dec. 10 through Friday, Dec. 15.
