National Geographic Global Television Networks President Courteney Monroe announced a new series, called China’s Hidden Kingdoms at this weeks Upfront presentation in New York.
CHINA’S HIDDEN KINGDOMS takes audiences into the secret wilds of China to reveal the beauty of its hidden kingdoms. With unique access to locations across the country, viewers go on a journey through these magical realms, exploring five very different worlds —high mountains, tropical jungles, bamboo forests, great plains and temperate forests.
“Stars” of these kingdoms include iconic and charismatic animals — the snow leopard, the giant panda, the Tibetan fox, the golden snub-nosed monkey and a stunning kaleidoscope of jungle creatures.
All these animals live within their own unique hidden kingdoms of habitats and landscapes, sharing their worlds with other fascinating creatures. Using high-specification drones, camera traps and the latest 4K camera technology to engage with these special animals, the series brings China’s hidden kingdoms to life in the most dramatic ways possible.

The series will be available on National Geographic in January 2020 and features 5 episodes.
With National Geographic set to be one of the core brands of Disney+, expect to see China’s Hidden Kingdoms on the new streaming platform as well. More details should be available nearer the launch of Disney+ in November.
