Osprey: Sea Raptor,

Sean Bean To Narrate Osprey Raptor Wildlife Doc For Love Nature, PBS & Sky
Quote
Sean Bean is to lend his voice to a natural history documentary about Osprey.

The Game of Thrones star is narrating Osprey: Sea Raptor, a one-hour doc for wildlife brand Love Nature that will air on PBS in the U.S. and Sky in the UK.

The film, which is produced by Love Nature and CosmoVision Media Group, tells the true story of a pair of magnificent raptors, a life-long couple, as they reunite having traveled separately across continents to the same location year-after-year to raise their young.

The doc will roll out on Love Nature’s linear and streaming platforms, outside of the U.S. and UK beginning this fall and Blue Ant International will handle international sales.

The special begins as the male osprey makes his way from South America to the Long Island Sound in the eastern United States. Having migrated separately, the pair reunites, only to find their nest nearly destroyed by winter storms while they were away. They fend off countless would-be usurpers of their territory and re-build one of the largest nests in the animal kingdom. Their family saga continues as three helpless chicks arrive, vulnerable and ravenous. Last to hatch is a scrawny and weak male, who, through his parents’ devotion and the force of his own will, battles his way to survival, and ends up being the first to fly.  Alongside the osprey family’s journey through one summer season, their lives intertwine with the red foxes, bald eagles, cormorants, raccoons and coyotes in their bio-diverse habitat in the center of America’s densest urban corridor.

Sky, Love Nature expand content partnership
Quote
Sky and Love Nature, a wildlife and nature brand with linear and streaming channels, have announced an extension of their content deal in support of Sky Nature, which originally launched in 2020 in the UK, and will now expand into Germany and Italy.

 Sky customers in both new markets will now have access to Sky Nature and its catalogue of original content. This includes access to 670 hours of content shot 4K by 2025. This includes the Sean Bean-narrated blue chip special, Osprey: Sea Raptor, Malawi Wildlife Rescue, Battle of the Alphas and other key original titles now in production. Programming will be localised in Italian and German.

“The expansion of our partnership with Sky TV is an important milestone in Love Nature’s history, bringing our universally loved wildlife and nature stories to millions of new fans in Italy and Germany,” said Carlyn Staudt, Global General Manager, Love Nature. “Not only does this expanded deal highlight the quality of our stunning series and documentaries, it validates Love Nature’s decision to invest in 4K over seven years ago, while navigating through all the uncharted territory that came with being one of the first to market in the natural history space.”

Zai Bennett, MD Content Sky UK & Ireland, added: “We launched Sky Nature just one year ago and it has already delivered record breaking audiences as the biggest natural channel in the UK. The natural world is increasingly important to our customers, and we recognise this interest is shared by customers in other markets, including Germany and Italy. Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia customers will now have access to Sky Nature’s world class nature programming and experience Love Nature’s extensive library of natural documentaries”

To my great disappointment, in the USA this documentary was renamed to "Season of the Osprey" and the narrator was changed to Paul Giamatti.  :crap :wellll: :damnit

I guess they thought the USA could not cope with Sean's Yorkshire accent, although they should be used to it by now, after Legends and GoT.
