Apple is carving out a niche with cutting-edge nature documentaries. It recently released Tiny World, and now reportedly bought the rights to Earthsound. This will take Apple TV+ subscribers on an audio tour of the natural world.

A description of the upcoming show leaked to Deadline says, “The half-hour series uses audio technology and cinematic 360 sound design to reveal the unexpected, unfamiliar and untold natural stories on every continent of the planet.”

Earthsound won‘t be a single documentary, but a twelve-part series.

Earthsound joins a growing collection of Apple TV+ nature documentaries

This upcoming docuseries is being produced by Offspring Films, which is also creating Earth at Night in Color for Apple TV+. This six-part series uses next-generation cameras to reveal the nocturnal lives of animals as never before possible.

And Apple’s Tiny World also uses new camera technology. In this case, it reveals the lives of the smallest animals on the planet.

Tiny World is available now on Apple TV+. Earth at Night in Color debuts on Friday, December 4. There is no word yet on when Earthsound will be available.

All are exclusives to Apple’s video streaming service, which costs $4.99 a month, and offers over three dozen TV series and movies now or coming soon. Plus, there are dozens more in production.
