Animal Antics Distributed Worldwide by Factory Media

Tuesday 8th March 2016 – UK based production entity Woodcut Media has been commissioned to produce a hilarious new factual entertainment series Animal Antics by MTG World for Viasat Nature.

Animal Antics (13 x 30’) which is distributed worldwide by Factory Media, and will be presented to buyers during the upcoming MIPTV market, will commence production this month, and showcases a compilation of comedic animal escapades.

From skate boarding racoons to pole dancing pooches, Animal Antics brings you the cutest critters from all over the world. This series showcases a different theme in each episode from the sportiest to the naughtiest, the craziest to the laziest beasts to ever step paw on Earth. Comedians, wildlife experts and animal vloggers will countdown their 20 favourite clips
