Smithsonian Channel to develop two original productions for Brazil

Days after being launched in Brazil, the pay TV Smithsonian Channel announced the arrival of ‘Jaguarland’ and ‘Brazil’s Emerald Osasis’, its first two productions in the country. Both were filmed in 4K and last one hour. They are prevented to be premiered this year.

‘These are the first two original productions mandated in the country, and  emphasize our commitment to work with the talented Brazilian audiovisual community. We are motivated to be able to offer local stories, both for Brazilian and global audiences’, said David Royle, Smithsonian Channel’s Programming Executive VP.

Jaguarland’s plot is focused on jaguars population that inhabit a small Pantanal’s area, known as ‘The jaguar land’, which concentrates the largest jaguars population worldwide. Brazil’s Emerald Osasis aims to show wildlife that takes place in the ‘rebel lake’, in its drought period.

‘We hope Brazilian producers to present their proposals. We are interested in series and one- hour single programs, and everything produced in 4K, because we want high quality not only of stories but also of the visual production’, expressed Royle.
