America’s National Parks with Anwar Mamon
Documentarian and executive producer Anwar Mamon fell in love with the United States through its national parks. In the project with National Geographic, he worked with several teams to highlight some of the best wilderness adventure sites in America’s National Parks.
The five-part series is narrated by country music singer Garth Brooks.
Here is the full synopsis of the series:
National Geographic takes viewers on an extraordinary venture across world-famous and lesser-known national parks to reveal the diversity and wonder of this beautiful country, from the lush valley floors of Yosemite to the constantly erupting volcanoes of Hawai’i. Narrated and executive produced by Garth Brooks, America’s National Parks showcases the breathtaking landscape and extraordinary wildlife in parks full of rich surprises and wonder. The award-winning creative team behind iconic natural history films and series like Disneynature’s Earth and Elephant Edan, as well as BBC’s Planet Earth and Frozen Planet, brings you the inspiring series shot using cutting-edge technology, including long-lens cinematography, remote camera traps, and the latest high-resolution drone technology.
