After UK-based Platinum Films and Bear Grylls Ventures formed a joint-venture named YBG Films Limited, it is currently in the works on a new animated series called Young Bear Grylls.
The series will be based on the escapades and adventures of a young Bear Grylls as he explores the world around him.
Edward Michael Bear Grylls is known worldwide as a British survivalist through his Discovery Channel show Man Vs Wild (also known as Born Survivor), Running Wild (NBC), The Island with Bear Grylls (Channel 4), Bear Grylls Survival School (ITV, CITV) and Absolute Wild (Chinese TV).
YBG Films will coordinate an international television and merchandising strategy in an effort to establish the series globally.
CITV’s original Bear Grylls Survival School was recently nominated for Best New Tween Series at the 2016 Kidscreen Awards.
