Eight-part Grizzly Man "Prequel" on Animal Planet
Animal Planet announced today that it will air a new eight-part series this summer that documents the life of Timothy Treadwell in the decade before his death. It will draw upon
the hundreds of hours of archived footage, private pages from his diaries and more than 10,000 still photographs, ultimately telling the story he truly
wanted to before his untimely death from the very creatures he loved so
deeply. The series, THE GRIZZLY MAN DIARIES, is slated to premiere Friday, August 22 2008 at 9 PM (ET/PT),and is scored by musician/composer
Richard Thompson, who also scored GRIZZLY MAN.
