"BIG CAT TALES" PREMIERES AS A FIVE-DAY TELEVISION EVENT ON ANIMAL PLANET FROM MONDAY OCT. 29 - FRIDAY NOV. 2 AT 8PM PM/ET

-Jonathan and Angela Scott and Jackson Ole Looseya Return to Animal Planet in All-New Series Filmed in Vivid 4K Resolution Directed by Award-Winning Filmmaker Abraham Joffe ACS-

Jonathan and Angie Scott and Jackson Ole Looseyia return to Animal Planet in the much-anticipated all-new natural history series filmed in 4K, BIG CAT TALES, which premieres as a five-day television event beginning Monday, Oct. 29 at 8PM. BIG CAT TALES documents present-day prides and families of the lions, leopards and cheetahs of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

Last seen on Animal Planet in the U.S. beginning in 1999, Jonathan Scott returns to the network with Angie and Jackson to take Animal Planet audiences on new journeys that will submerge them into the world of big cats, including the memorable Marsh Pride of lions, for a first-hand look as their families evolve, cubs grow and lives ebb and ?ow, bringing the mix of joy and excitement that make these big cats so irresistible.

In the premiere episode, Rebirth in the Mara, on Monday, Oct. 29, Jonathan and Angie return to the Masai Mara to reconnect with their beloved Marsh Pride, generations of lions they have been following for more than 40 years. New cubs have arrived as well as the pride's greatest threat - the buffalo. Jackson tracks the famous Mara cheetah, Malika, as she hunts to provide food for young cubs of her own. Elusive leopard sightings are on the rise with several new characters emerging from the shadows. Jonathan seeks to find his favorite leopard, Bahati, and the three newborn cubs that have been sighted with her. Throughout the season, remarkable big cat behavior is documented through journeys of motherhood, play, survival and territorial battles that include the rarely observed bonding between mother leopard and cubs and a dramatic male impala hunting sequence.

Other BIG CAT TALES episodes include:

· Tuesday, Oct. 30 - Danger in the long grass: The Dynamics of the Marsh pride are changing with the introduction of the older cubs to Charm's newborns. Malaika's persistence to nourish her young leads her to a dramatic wildebeest pursuit. Bahati reveals her cubs as Jonathan has his first sighting

· Wednesday, Oct. 31 - Battle on the plains: Bahati struggles to protect her three cubs from baboons and lions. The Marsh lionesses hunt an injured buffalo while Malaika meets her match in a battle with a large male impala. The arrival of six male lions puts the entire Marsh Pride at risk

· Thursday, Nov. 1 - Faces from the shadows: After months away, the team returns to the Mara during the migration of the wildebeest. The Marsh Pride are missing and must be found. A rare coalition of five male cheetahs has arrived. Bahati attempts to hunt topi before a huge crocodile intervenes

· Friday, Nov. 2 - Survivors of the savanna: New characters emerge, including Fig the leopard. Jackson witnesses the five cheetah boys cooperatively hunting. Notch and her young cubs attempt to journey across the plains. Jonathan witnesses a spectacular crossing before some old friends return.
