What will happen in Serengeti?
The official BBC synopsis for Serengeti reads: “Capturing the high drama of the Serengeti’s distinctive wildlife up close.”
In the UK, the series is narrated by John Boyega, while the US version has voiceover from Lupita Nyong’o.
In an interview with the BBC, Serengeti series director John Downer said of the show: “Serengeti is a dramatised Natural History series based on the behaviour of the animals that live in this region of east Africa.
“As the series is dramatised, we decided to have memorable and appropriate names to identify our animal characters.
“The named characters aren’t always the same animal every time we see them.
“By using composite animals, united by the same name, it is possible to tell a comprehensive drama showing all the trials, disappointments and triumphs these species face.
“This dramatised account aims to present a complete picture of an animal’s life that would be difficult to show any other way.
The series will have six episodes focusing on the different species that call the region home.
