NatGeo Wild greenlights ‘Rescue’

Series features exec producer Eastwood

NatGeo Wild has greenlit six-part series “Extreme Animal Rescue,” featuring Alison Eastwood and Donald Schultz.

Eastwood, the daughter of Clint Eastwood who directed “Rails & Ties” and appeared in such films as “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” is an animal advocate who will partner with wildlife expert and adventurer Schultz in seeking sanctuary for animals of all kinds in peril.

The skein is set to air in more than 90 countries, thanks to the global reach of NatGeo Wild.

“There are so many exotic animals that are neglected, abused or abandoned,” NatGeo Wild senior veep Geoff Daniels said, “and this series shines a light on those stories, as well as the challenges and extreme measures involved to get a happy ending on all sides.”

Said Schultz: “I joined this series to bring awareness to the roadside zoos, illegal animal mills, underground competitions and personal homes where animals are kept in inhumane conditions. I hope people will watch this series and get inspired to help.”

Jay Bienstock and Eugene Young of Bienstock Young Media are exec producing with Eastwood, Maissa Dauriac and Billy McNamara.
