No one will ever say that there is too much Planet Earth .
Sir David Attenborough, the voice of some of the greatest nature documentaries, has spent almost exclusively his career with the BBC. But on Thursday, Netflix announced that it has delivered a sufficiently large dump truck filled with money to sign the 92-year-old broadcaster for its own series Nature Our Planet .
In a press release Attenborough said: " Our Planet will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery that shows the beauty and fragility of our natural world."
The eight-part series debuting on April 5, 201
This Planet Earth clones the legitimacy. Alastair Fothergill, the creator of the Two Planets Planet and Blue Planet directs. Fothergill said this was "our most ambitious venture so far".
The announcement comes with a teaser. Awesome music? Check. Wide views? Check. Unreal close-ups of wildlife? Check. The smoothest British voiceover in the business? Well, they hold back wisely until he just quotes the words " Our Planet only on Netflix".
