The company’s Digital Native Content division will create and curate half-hour episodes from the show’s popular YouTube channel.

We are excited to use our streaming expertise and infrastructure to help Wilderness Productions access new audiences, generate new revenue streams, and further build their business overall.”
Wilderness Production’s Beau Sedivy added, “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with FilmRise, taking our series to AVoD, SVoD. Nature is a universal language, and we are thrilled to be able to offer Brave Wilderness as a TV series to audiences around the world on streaming platforms.”
