News brief: Discovery Kids buys kids doc series

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific has acquired documentary adventure series Bushwhacked from the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF).

The 13x26mins series follows hosts Brandon Walters and Kayne Tremills as they travel to remote corners of Australia, exploring the local people, habitats and wildlife along the way.

It will air on Discovery Kids across Asia in 2014.

Bushwhacked shows off Australia’s unique wildlife and culture in a way that is equal parts exciting and intriguing and we’re really thrilled that children throughout Asia will be able to go on this fantastic journey through Discovery Kids,” said Jenny Buckland, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Children’s Television Foundation.
