‘Sobrevivir’ Joins Discovery en Español’s Sundays

The circle of life is getting a Sunday-night spotlight from Discovery en Español.

Sobrevivir, a six-part miniseries focused on the various life stages of different animals, is set to debut Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. slot. It will air that the time period over the subsequent five weeks.

The miniseries follows individual animals in their natural habitats, offering viewers a look at their lives from the animal’s perspective. Its narrator is Enrique Rocha, a 75-year-old veteran Mexican actor.

"This was my first time narrating a series, and I am thrilled to be a part of telling this ever-important story about life," Rocha said. "Sobrevivir offers viewers an exclusive opportunity to witness the wonderful and often heart-wrenching cycle of life."

The miniseries, a co-production of the BBC, Discovery Channel and France Television in association with The Open University, was shot in 29 countries on six continents, yielding more than 1,800 hours of footage for the nature documentary. It was produced by Mike Gunton, Rupert Barrington and Sarah Spaniolo.
