Natural 9 Entertainment, a Burbank-based Emmy Award-winning production company, has announced today that their hit family series THE WILDLIFE DOCS, a weekly half-hour program about the adventures of the highly skilled veterinarians at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, airing on ABC as part of Litton's Weekend Adventure, has been renewed for its fourth season comprised of 26 original episodes.Each segment of the show features amazing exotic animals and the people who care for them at the park's ANIMAL Care Center and beyond. During the third season, viewers watched THE WILDLIFE DOCS as they traveled to Panama and East AFRICA to help rescue and provide medical attention to exotic species in the wild. The production for the next season is already underway where the team will once again go beyond the park walls with episodes shot in Cambodia and Mexico, where the Docs even go on a shark dive. Wildlife activist and comedienne Rachel Reenstra returns as the host of the popular series. Reenstra previously starred in her own ANIMAL Planet show titled "Ms. Adventure," where she traveled the world comparing ANIMAL and human behavior. "We are thrilled to continue shooting with our two and four-legged friends for yet another exciting Season," said Jeff Androsky, President of Natural 9 Entertainment.

"The Wildlife Docs embodies the purpose of SeaWorld & Busch Gardens. It's not just an award-winning television show, but it's yet another way our company provides education about conservation, wildlife care and rescue and how everyone can make a difference for animals around the world," said Anthony Esparza, Chief Creative Officer for SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment.
