Will Smith's Westbrook Studio Signs Deal with National Geographic

Will Smith's Westbrook Studios has signed a deal with National Geographic for a five-year first-look deal for unscripted content. This is in addition to an upcoming series in development with Disney+ called "Welcome to Earth ", which will premiere later this year.

"Having spent the past two years working with Will and the team at Westbrook Studios (along with Darren Aronofsky and Nutopia) on Welcome To Earth, we are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with them and entering into a long-term partnership to produce blockbuster nonfiction content. Will and Westbrook share our passion for telling bold, best-in-class stories that ignite curiosity and inspire people to explore and care about our world, and we can't wait to see where our next adventures together take us," said Courteney Monroe, president, National Geographic Content.

Terence Carter, Westbrook Studios Co-President and Head of Television, said, "Will and I are thrilled to partner with National Geographic to bring the astonishing imagery of nature and science to screens around the world. We strive to empower artists to tell stories that connect humanity, and Courteney and the entire Nat Geo team share that vision. Through these stories, we invite audiences to see the wonder and beauty of the world around us and to experience the endless adventure and exploration that's possible on our humbling planet."

The announcement was made today during National Geographic's virtual TCA summer session.
