From the award-winning producers of “Planet Earth,” “Frozen Planet” and the “Disneynature” films, “America the Beautiful,” narrated by Michael B. Jordan, is the jaw-dropping story of our homeland and its amazing animals. North America is the most diverse and extreme continent on Earth. The only place where you can find every landscape, from Arctic icecap to baking desert and everything in-between. We take a journey through America’s most spectacular regions — the mountainous Northwest, the steamy South, the arid West and the endless Heartland. Whatever the neighborhood, there’s a hero who can make it a home. Smart, tough, brave, you name it, the animals of North America have what it takes to overcome the elements and thrive. In our closing episode, we meet the human heroes fighting to preserve our wildlife and wild places for future generations. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.

Before Greg Wilson became an Oscar Short-Listed, Emmy and International Documentary Award mining director and cinematographer there was the athlete. Wilson had a career as a professional snowboarder until an injury led him to end the sport. He made a shift to work for National Geographic magazine as a photojournalist before moving on to filmmaking. Now he is known for creating impossible cinematic shots in rough environments.
With the release of America The Beautiful I was connected via Zoom with Mark Linfield And Greg Wilson. Linfield explained what makes America the Beautiful different from other NatGeo documentaries. Wilson explained how using fighter jets helped to capture the breathtaking landscapes. Both shared what was their favorite hero story in the series and more!
