New ABC ME wildlife series explores the toughest Aussie animals in a quest to find the ones BUILT TO SURVIVE

- ADVERTISEMENT -

ABC and ACTF are delighted to announce that production is underway on ABC ME’s ten-part children’s natural history factual series, Built to Survive.

Wildlife afficionado, biologist and third generation Indigenous educator, Phil Breslin, will brave some of the country’s most extreme and hostile environments in search of the ultimate animal survivors: species that have evolved their unique qualities to withstand Australia’s extreme conditions and unique ecosystems.

Built To Survive will be filmed on location in remote and wilderness environments throughout Queensland. Consulting with First Nations peoples about habitats and lifecycles, Phil will traverse rivers and deserts, dive deep into the ocean, scale trees and use science in a bid to explore some of the strangest and most specialised animal adaptations on the planet.

Libbie Doherty, ABC Head of Children’s Production said,

“Aussie kids are adventurers at heart, captivated by our unique land, curious wildlife and Indigenous knowledge. Phil’s fresh perspective combines all three and takes the ABC ME audience on a wild ride across Australia. A hearty thanks to Phil, Butter Media and the ACTF who have been working hard to help us commence production this month.”

Bernadette O’Mahony, ACTF Head of Content said,

“Kids across the globe will enjoy travelling with Phil on his remote adventures and discovering our unique Australian wildlife and how they adapt to their environments.  ACTF is pleased to support Butter Media as they produce their first children’s series and look forward to a great shoot over the coming months”.    

Production Credit: BUILT TO SURVIVE is being produced by Butter Media for ABC TV, with support from Screen NSW through the NSW PDV, and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation who will distribute the series. Producers: Jerry Butterfield, Dan Walkington and Phil Beslin; Executive Producers: Mary Ellen Mullane and Bernadette O’Mahony.

Built to Survive will screen on ABC ME and ABC iview in 2022.
