National Geographic announces six-part wildlife series, Hostile Planet.

National Geographic has announced its six-part saga Hostile Planet beginning July 29, at 9 PM.

Hostile Planet draws attention to the most extraordinary accounts of animals that have adapted to the cruellest evolutionary curveballs.

The series zooms in on the world's most extreme environments to reveal the animal kingdom's stories of survival on this fast and continuously shifting planet.

Hostile Planet promises viewers with the next generation of wildlife filmmaking, acknowledging the world is rapidly changing and that the challenges animals face are different than how they have always been.

Each titular episode features mountains, oceans, grasslands, jungles, deserts and polar regions and navigates the brutal conditions endured by some of the most complex species on the planet.

Facing an overwhelming host of challenges including punishing weather, an intense competition for resources and a constant predator-vs.-prey conflict, the mission is quite simple: survive or die.

Hostile Planet logged approximately 1,800 hours of footage, traversed all seven continents in 82 shoots over 1,300 days of filming and employed 245 crew members on location.

Through innovative technology and access to some of the most remote and hostile locations on the planet, Hostile Planet captures new behaviours as well as behaviours from new perspectives, including a snow-leopard-and-ibex tumble; a jaguar seizing a giant caiman; barnacle geese chicks base jumping from cliffs; and the first-ever filmed hunt where an Arctic wolf pursued a muskox.
