Always on the hunt for new wildlife programming, Nat Geo Wild has ordered three-part event series “Kingdom of the White Wolf,” news that TheWrap reported exclusively as part of the cable channel’s 2019-20 slate. We’ve also got your first look at the Arctic-set specials.
In our exclusive preview video from the Market Road Films production, which is set to premiere in August, a pack of 10 white wolves are experiencing “the best, and possibly last, day of their lives,” narrator Ronan Donovan tells us. After playtime, comes the hunt — and this is the young pups’ first opportunity to see mom and dad do their thing.
Here’s the deal, though: Those musk oxen are in herd formation themselves.
Watch our “Kingdom of the White Wolf” sneak peek via the video above.
