History net locks up doc

Wild Eyes to produce 'Skeletons'

The History Channel has greenlit “Skeletons of the Zahara,” an elaborate two-hour documentary that will set up shop in Morocco next month for 18 days of location shooting.

Produced by the Los Angeles-based Wild Eyes Prods., “Zahara” is based on the bestselling book by Dean H. King, who’ll help write the script and do some on-camera narration.

Docu is a survival tale dealing with the 1815 capture of the captain and crew of a Connecticut merchant ship by Arab nomads who sold the Americans into slavery. After a nightmarish ordeal in which they were forced to make their way across the Sahara desert, the Americans developed a rapport of sorts with their Muslim captors.

In addition to “Zahara,” Wild Eyes is doing post-production on “Heroes Under Fire,” a 13-hour series it produced for History that kicks off Nov. 11. History has also signed Wild Eyes to do a one-shot docu called “The True Story of Che.”

For Discovery Times Channel, Wild Eyes has done series “Critical Threat” and miniseries “Guests of the Ayatollah.”
