Apple TV+ today unveiled a trio of documentary series that celebrate humanity and the natural world, premiering globally this fall and narrated by Oscar and Golden Globe winner Olivia Colman, Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston and Golden Globe nominee Paul Rudd.
Rudd narrates “Tiny World,” which takes a unique perspective on the natural world, exploring the ingenuity and resilience of the smallest animals on the planet. New camera technology allows viewers, for the very first time, to see the world through the eyes of the tiniest creatures and witness the extraordinary things they do to survive. The first six episodes of “Tiny World” will make their global debut on Oct. 2.
Colman narrates “Becoming You,” a global child development series that explores how the first 2,000 days on Earth shape the rest of our lives. Told through the eyes of more than 100 children across the world, from Nepal to Japan and Borneo, each episode offers a thought-provoking look at how children learn to think, speak and move, from birth to age 5. It underscores how different our journeys can be, but ultimately tells the story of our shared humanity and community when it comes to raising children. The first six episodes premiere Nov. 13.
A natural history series narrated by Hiddleston, “Earth at Night in Color” uses next-generation cameras to reveal the nocturnal lives of animals, in color, for the first time ever. Filmed across six continents, from the Arctic Circle to the African grasslands, the series follows the moonlit dramas of animals at night, revealing new insights and never-before-seen behaviors. It premieres Dec. 4.
