FremantleMedia goes back in time with 'Prehistoric Park'

Fremantle International Distribution (FID), the distribution arm of global production outfit FremantleMedia, has announced that the highly-anticipated big budget 'Prehistoric Park' (6x60’), from the creators of the 'Walking With'… series, will headline its slate for MIPTV ‘06.
Created by multi award-winning UK independent producers Impossible Pictures, 'Prehistoric Park' is fronted by natural history expert Nigel Marven and embraces the latest CGI technology as Marven travels back in time to rescue some of the most amazing animals who ever roamed the earth.
The family-friendly programme is a co-production between ITV (UK), Animal Planet (US), M6 (France) and ProSieben (Germany). As co-financiers, FID have the international distribution rights (excluding France and Germany) and look forward to sharing the inspiring programme with worldwide broadcasters.
'Prehistoric Park' will feature stunning scenery from some of the most beautiful places on earth, both from history and today. Each of the six episodes will feature a different prehistoric predicament and will delight audiences with an appetite for adventure.. Marven takes his life in his hands when he steps back in time to try and save from extinction all manner of creatures, bringing them back to the 21st century. There are a pair of baby T Rex dinosaurs; a mammoth with a daily craving for 400 pounds of grass; a four-winged feathered dinosaur known as a Microraptor; a South American sabre tooth cat; 300 million-year-old ‘superbugs’ – including three foot long scorpions and dragonflies the size of hawks, not to mention enormous prehistoric crocodiles who ate dinosaurs.
