Discovery Networks Europe has entered a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment for docu-series Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan. The eight-part show is produced by Cream/Wildfire and premiered on BBC America last night. It will air across Europe beginning with Animal Planet Nordics on February 7, followed by Animal Planet Russia and Romania. The travel-adventure series follows former Lost star Monaghan as he encounters some of the world’s most dangerous and elusive creatures. Monaghan recently told a TCA panel that he was inspired to do the show after the death of “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin. The show “is a love letter” to what Irwin “achieved and the television shows he left behind,” Monaghan said.
