Hollywood’s highest-paid actor, Robert Downey Jr. told the world that the four-part wildlife series ‘The Bond’ would air on Discovery Channel.
In order to release the news about the upcoming wildlife series, which spotlights the unique bond between animals and humans, the ‘Iron Man’ took to Instagram, included a photo of herself with an alpaca, and added a caption that reads:
“FuzzytheAlpaca has an exciting announcement. #TheBond will air on @discovery! Our series dives into the wondrous and intimate connections between humans and animals. (Because animals are people too, and humans are animals, last I checked.)”
‘The Bond’ was ordered by Discovery Channel, and shortly after, Downey Jr. revealed that he would be executive produced the series alongside Susan Downey, and Emily Barclay Ford.
Regarding the series, in a statement Susan Downey said:
“The Bond reminds us that beauty, connection and hope can be born out of the most adverse and challenging circumstance in our world. As animal lovers, we are thrilled to partner with Glen Zipper and Discovery to capture these incredible stories.”
Then the well-known writer, film producer, and the partner of the series, Glen Zipper added:
“Our connections with our beloved pets are strong and familiar, but humanity’s bond with animals goes far beyond just dogs and cats, sometimes manifesting in truly extraordinary ways. I’m thrilled to be partnering with Team Downey and Discovery to explore these special relationships and the often inspiring and surprising stories of how we intersect with our many other cohabitants in nature.”
