Ewan McGregor Adds Voice to ‘Islands’

Wildlife docu to be launched at MipTV

LONDON – Ewan McGregor will provide the voiceover for a wildlife documentary filmed in the Hebrides islands off the Scottish coast, which will be launched at Cannes television mart MipTV.

The four-parter, with the working title “Islands on the Edge,” is distributed by ITV Studios and was produced by Maramedia for BBC Scotland.

The series, using state-of-the-art camera technology, was made by a team of filmmakers whose credits include the BBC’s “Frozen Planet” and “Yellowstone,” both strong sellers at international markets. The latter, narrated by Peter Firth, aired in the U.S. as a two-hour special on Animal Planet.

The Hebrides are a collection of small islands off the west coast of Scotland populated by red deer, otters, gannets and eagles while dolphins, sharks and seals swim in the waters around them.

Like “Yellowstone,” “Islands on the Edge” was filmed over the course of a year. It is due to bow this spring in the U.K.

MipTV runs April 8-11.
