Conservationist, adventurer, and author Paul Rosolie to star in new TV series, the Junglekeepers, produced by Michael Holstein and The Content Farm
WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 24, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Emmy Award-winning TV producer, Michael Holstein believes his new series, The Junglekeepers, starring famed environmentalist Paul Rosolie, will help save the world — and entertain millions along the way. Rosolie, often referred to as the “Indiana Jones of the Amazon”, is a naturalist, conservationist, and swashbuckling explorer with a taste for danger and a passion for saving the Earth’s wild places and their inhabitants. Rosolie’s mission – and that of the series – is to save the planet before its too late, sounding the alarm for how fast we are losing biodiversity, decimating animal species, and burning jungles, “leaving no future for humanity.”
The Junglekeepers will be available worldwide, with distribution discussions ongoing with notable premium streaming platforms and cable networks. On each one-hour episode of The Junglekeepers, Rosolie will welcome that week’s newest guest conservationist – a CEO, A-list celebrity, philanthropist, head of state, or other dignitary – then, together with his team of world-renowned guides, vets, conservationists, security forces, and more, they will tackle a mission head-on: saving elephants in Kenya, battling wildfires in the Amazon, infiltrating rhino poachers in the Congo, and countless other journeys – all aimed at stopping or slowing this existential threat. Holstein said, “this series will be real, raw, unflinchingly honest – and, with an amazing cast and unique audience engagement component – unlike anything else on television. It’s an absolute game changer at a time when one is needed.”
Rosolie, who captivates the attention of hundreds of thousands on his Instagram feed, where a typical day often includes wrestling anacondas, saving rhinos, befriending elephants, and hanging with butterflies, frogs, and monkeys never before seen by most humans said, “in order to illustrate what we stand to lose, I want to demonstrate what an incredible, beautiful, and exciting world we live in. This will be an expedition, a personal journey, and a great adventure across the globe. It also needs to drive home the urgency and brutality of what is happening to animals and places right now. This is a journey that can get very dark – at times devastating and always catalyzing – but it is also fun, exciting, and inspiring.”
The deck for The Junglekeepers — featuring episodes and a small sample of the incredible talent attached to the project — is now readily available (https://bit.ly/JKDeck) and a thrilling sizzle reel is available on special request.
PAUL ROSOLIE has lived to tell the tale of how he survived contracting a fatal tropical disease, wrestled jaguars, and was eaten alive by an anaconda. He is the author of the novel, The Girl and the Tiger, and his memoir, Mother of God, which was hailed by Jane Goodall as “gripping,” and called “awe inspiring” by Bear Grylls. Rosolie is the founder and director of Junglekeepers, a Peruvian NGO that protects over 50,000 acres of threatened rainforest on the Las Piedras River, Peru. He has appeared on countless TV shows, been the subject of award-winning documentaries, and his conservation writing has appeared in National Geographic, The Huffington Post, and The Guardian.
