Nine has picked up the rights to the David Attenborough-presented Blue Planet II from BBC Worldwide.
The 7 part series which looks at the earth’s underwater worlds and is a follow-up to 2001’s global hit Blue Planet.
The series has now been sold to 30 countries ahead of its international premiere at Mipcom, according to C21.
“Blue Planet II is shaping up to be another big international hit, hot on the heels of the hugely successful Planet Earth II, said Paul Dempsey, BBCWW’s president of global markets.
“The BBC Studios Natural History Unit are in a league of their own when it comes to producing global event TV, with this new series being epic in scale, ambition and dedication.”
Nine is likely to confirm its acquisition at its 2018 Upfronts this afternoon.
