National Geographic Channel has slated miniseries event History Of The World (working title) and two-hour special Dino Autopsy for premiere in 2015. History Of The World will tell the story of the world, from how it began to present day, through a mix of comedy, animation and documentary storytelling, the network said today at TCA in Pasadena. Topics will include how the world came about and how it was populated, the evolution of man and the origins of spirituality, money, leisure time, sports, hygiene and entertainment. Production is still in the early stages, with a Fall 2015 premiere planned.
History Of The World will be produced for Nat Geo Channels by Altschuler & Krinsky Works, 3Arts Entertainment and National Geographic Studios.
Dino Autopsy combines biology with paleontology “to explore the guts and glory of a T-Rex”, according to the network. It’s slated to premiere in summer 2015. Using cutting-edge special effects techniques, and in collaboration with veterinary surgeons, anatomists and paleontologists, Dino Autopsy will build the world’s first full-size anatomically correct Tyrannosaurus Rex. “The massive monster will be life-like inside and out, giving scientists the chance to touch it, smell it, scan it, X-ray it and cut it open from head to toe for the first time,” the network says.
Impossible Factual is producing for National Geographic Channels International.
