Discovery Networks Asia Pacific Acquire World Animal Championship from Australia
Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific has acquired the ultimate children’s wildlife series World Animal Championships (WAC) from the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF). The 52-part series that puts the animal kingdom through its paces and has a heap of fun along the way will air on Discovery Kids across Asia in 2014.
“We’re thrilled that WAC will be seen all over Asia on Discovery Kids – which is such a natural home for this series.” said ACTF CEO, Jenny Buckland,
Hosted by Amberley Lobo and Scotty Tweedie, WAC sees all animals great and small go head-to-head for wildlife supremacy. Who is the strongest animal of them all? The smartest? The grossest? And even most romantic? These burning questions and more are answered in this fast-paced, fact-packed show.
“WAC has the perfect blend of high-energy fun and rapid-fire facts and is a great fit for Discovery Kids’ promise of smart fun for school-age kids,” said Sarah Kwek, Manager, Programming, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific
WAC is distributed by the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF).
