Nat Geo Wild Announces New Episodes of "Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan" as Hit Series Moves to New Network

10 New Episodes Begin Production Immediately; to Premiere in Early 2012

Library of Original Episodes Moves to Nat Geo WILD

Beginning in April 2011, With Month long Airings Weekdays at 8 PM

WASHINGTON, March 11, 2011 -- Nat Geo WILD announced today that the hit series Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan is moving to the new network, with 10 all-new episodes beginning production immediately. The new episodes will air in early 2012.

Additionally, the series' 141 completed episodes will begin their move to Nat Geo WILD this April as the series airs all month long on weekdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT. (Episodes will also continue airing on NGC through the third quarter.) Dog Whisperer is produced by MPH Entertainment and Emery/Sumner Productions in Los Angeles. Cesar also serves as an executive producer for the new episodes.

The show will continue to document Cesar's amazing rehabilitations of problem dogs, and will also include a special episode with dogs that have phobias and obsessions, a Valentine's Day special with home wrecker dogs and a variety of other new twists to the series format.

"We could not be more excited to have Cesar stay part of the National Geographic family, and re-energize the series as it makes its move to WILD for its eighth season," said Geoff Daniels, senior vice president, Nat Geo WILD and National Geographic Channels International. "Cesar has built a global franchise around this series, and we are thrilled that he has decided to continue the series in the National Geographic family."

"National Geographic has been my home for the past seven years, and I am thrilled to grow the series as we move to a new network, Nat Geo WILD," added Cesar. "My dream has always been to educate by rehabilitating not just dogs, but their owners, to achieve a balanced a natural relationship between humans and their pets. This show is the foundation of that dream."

"We're going bigger and bolder this season, with unique stories and intense situations that we've never filmed before," said Jim Milio, one of the series' executive producers.

Dog Whisperer has been nominated for an Emmy for Best Reality Series three times, and has won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Animal Show.

Dog Whisperer is produced by MPH Entertainment and Emery/Sumner Productions for National Geographic Channel. Executive producers along with Millan are MPH Entertainment's Jim Milio, Melissa Jo Peltier and Mark Hufnail. Sheila Possner Emery and Kay Bachman Sumner are producers. For the National Geographic Channel, executive producer is Char Serwa, senior vice president of production is Michael Cascio and executive vice president of global content is Steve Burns.

For more than 30 years, National Geographic has been the leader in wildlife programming. Now the animal kingdom is taking center stage on a brand-new network, Nat Geo WILD. Offering intimate encounters with nature's ferocious fighters and gentle creatures of land, sea and air, Nat Geo WILD and Nat Geo WILD HD will draw upon the cutting-edge work of the many explorers, filmmakers and scientists who have long-standing relationships with the National Geographic Society. Nat Geo WILD is a joint venture between Fox Cable Networks (FCN) and National Geographic Ventures (NGV) ? the same partnership behind the National Geographic Channel (NGC), which launched January 2001 and has since been one the most successful new networks on the landscape. Nat Geo WILD launched globally more than three years ago and is the fastest-growing channel among the international portfolio of National Geographic networks.
