I am the Executive Producer of Planet Earth II, and Dynasties, Michael Gunton. AMA.
Hello Reddit, I am Michael Gunton, and I am the Creative Director of Factual and the Natural History Unit at BBC Studios.
I have overseen over 200 wildlife films including critically acclaimed series from Yellowstone to Life, Africa, Life Story, and the BAFTA and Emmy winning Planet Earth II, working closely with Sir David Attenborough on many productions. You may know my projects such as Shark, Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur, Planet Earth II, Big Cats and most recently Dynasties, which premieres on BBC America Saturday January 19 at 9pm ET. Here’s a link to the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbCiSheAF5M
I'm here to answer your questions, Reddit!
EDIT: Thank you so much for all your questions. Great, insightful, made me think hard. Thanks for following all our work, please keep doing it and if you haven’t seen Dynasties, standby. I think it's the best thing I've ever done.
