Surviving Paradise: Regé-Jean Page to narrate Netflix nature doc
James R | On 08, Feb 2022
Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page will be lending his dulcet tones to Surviving Paradise: A Family Tale, a new nature documentary for Netflix.
The film explores the Okavango Delta, a vast oasis, isolated from the rest of the world by unforgiving desert. It’s also a refuge, built and maintained daily by its inhabitants; in return, it caters for their every need. Big cats may appear to reign here, but in reality, the fate of every creature, great and small, is intertwined. This film explores the blueprints for building the perfect world, managing it sustainably, and maintaining it – despite extremes of drought, famine, and flood. Most crucially, it spotlights those passing the secret formula on to their descendants, who will find it harder than ever before to keep their Eden intact.
It hails from the Bristol-based Wild Space Productions, whose founder, James Honeyborne, has a multi-year overall deal with Netflix to produce nature and science films and series. Honeyborne will exec-produce, with Renee Godfrey directing and producing and Matt Meech editing and co-directing.
You can see the end result – and hear Regé-Jean Page’s voice in your living room once again – on 3rd March.
