"Life" on Discovery Channel is a documentary narrated by global media leader and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey.

Our world is home to more than 30 million different animal and plant species, each locked in a unique fight for survival. The all-new 11-part series "Life" on Discovery Channel is the definitive exploration of the adaptability and diversity of life on earth, revealing the most spectacular, bizarre and fascinating behaviors that living things have devised in order to thrive. Many of these were captured for the first time using the latest in state-of-the-art high-definition filming techniques.

From strange creatures, such as the star-nosed mole that hunts underwater using bubbles to smell its prey, to epic spectacles, including millions of fruit bats darkening the Zambian sky, each episode tells mind-blowing stories of survival with drama, humor and suspense.

More than four years in the making, filmed over 3,000 days, across every continent and in every habitat, this is life as no one has ever seen it before.

 The premiere episode of "Life" on Discovery Channel, "Challenges of Life," provides an overview and sets the stage for the ambitious series. A special "Making Of" episode caps the series and tells the incredible stories of the dozens of men and women who spent days, weeks and months patiently waiting for a perfect shot. Other episodes showcase "Birds," deep sea marine invertebrates ("Creatures of the Deep"), "Fish," hunting mammals ("Hunters and Hunted"), "Insects," "Mammals," "Plants," "Primates" and "Reptiles & Amphibians."

"Life" is a BBC and Discovery Channel co-production. Mike Gunton is the executive producer for the BBC. Susan Winslow is the executive producer for Discovery Channel. Discovery Channel and the BBC also created the award-winning natural history series "Planet Earth" and "Blue Panet."
