Disney has announced that the National Geographic documentary series, “Queens” is going to be released on Disney+ in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on Tuesday, 5th March 2024, which is the same day as when the show debuts on Disney+ in the United States, after premiere’s on the National Geographic channel the night before.
The wildest places on the planet have always been home to powerful leaders, but this a story of a new hero – fierce, smart, resilient and … female. “Queens” features matriarchies and female leaders around the world to tell a story of sacrifice and resilience but also of friendship and love.
These “Queens” aren’t always kind or gentle, letting nothing come between them and the success and safety of their families. Guided by award-winning actress Angela Bassett’s powerful narration, “Queens” brings the natural world into focus through the female lens for the very first time. Four years in the making and helmed by a female-led production team from around the world – groundbreaking in the natural history space – the seven-part series leverages cutting-edge technology to reveal surprising insights into how females in the natural world rise to power, often relying on cooperation and wisdom over brute strength to get ahead.
The final episode of the series celebrates the women who have gone to the ends of the Earth and dedicated their lives to documenting and protecting animal queens. We don’t call her Mother Nature for nothing. All hail … the “Queens”.
“Queens” is produced by Wildstar Films for National Geographic. For Wildstar Films, Vanessa Berlowitz is the executive producer, and Chloe Sarosh serves as showrunner and writer. Sophie Darlington and Justine Evans are the series’ directors of photography. For National Geographic, Pamela Caragol is the executive producer, and Janet Han Vissering is the senior vice president of Development and Production.
