Channel 5 have commissioned three-part natural history series Shark (w/t) from Crackit Productions and GroupM Motion Entertainment.

The series will offer viewers a surprising, insightful, and shocking look into the planet’s most feared predator, the shark. Each episode takes a look at various aspects of the shark, including attacks, conservation, survivor stories and even examining a shark’s anatomy.

Viewers will learn how the predators hunt, hear first-hand shark attack survivor stories, and see ground-breaking dives without cages, taking viewers closer to the sharks during the ‘dusk’ danger hour, to face them when they are at their most active.

Elaine Hackett, CEO at Crackit said: "For three incredible nights, we’ll be bringing the world’s most fearsome predators into the homes of the Channel 5 audience.  Each episode will be a mixture of shocking and terrifying stories with plenty of teeth and bite – but always reminding us why we need to value and look after these extraordinary beasts and why they remain a valued part of the ecosystem."

Federico Ruiz, Commissioning Editor at Channel 5 added: "This series is a visceral, thrilling, white-knuckle ride. There are few things more terrifying than a shark attack, as recent news reports illustrate. After this, you’ll think twice before stepping into your bath."

Melanie Darlaston, Exec Producer at GroupM Motion Entertainment said: "It’s a pleasure to be working with Crackit on this series which explores exactly why these fearsome creatures are the ocean’s apex predators, and why they deserve our respect and protection."

Shark will air on Channel 5 and My5.
