According to Deadline, Helen Mirren will be featured as the narrator in the upcoming ABC unscripted wildlife comedy.
Helen Mirren had this to say about the project:
“I am excited by the opportunity to reveal the ‘true inner lives’ of the noble creatures with whom we share the planet”.
The series will take a humorous look at wildlife by discovering “the surprising sounds that come out of the mouths of majestic beasts, teeny-tiny frogs and beatboxing badgers.” It is somewhat of a remake of BBC’s Walk on the Wild Side, which featured the same premise during its two-year run.
The television series, now titled When Nature Calls with Helen Mirren, will premiere on ABC on June 24. Check out the first teaser below.
