Wind Dancer in on multinational docu skein

U.K. shingle Off the Fence is collaborating with two U.S. co-producers on docu series, “Wildest Africa,” highlighting the damage being done to the continent’s ecosystems.

The 13-part skein, which Off the Fence is launching at Mip TV, is being made with indies Wind Dancer Films and Africa HD.

The series features such geographical wonders as the wild waters of the Zambezi river, the volcanoes of Virunga National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro’s herds of red elephants.

Skein is helmed by Richard Kirby, whose credits include “Life” and “The Private Life of Plants,” both made for the BBC.

The first four episodes of “Wildest Africa” have been partially co-funded by UKTV’s Eden channel, Oasis HD, Gallic-Teutonic cultural channels Arte and German pubcaster ZDF and ZDF Enterprises.

“The series showcases just what can be achieved through strong partnerships,” said Off the Fence’s chief operating officer Ellen Windemuth.
