(WASHINGTON, D.C./BRISTOL, U.K. - Oct. 13, 2016) When filmmaker Filipe DeAndrade won Nat Geo WILD's Wild to Inspire short film compeititon in 2014, he never dreamed that the opportunity would lead to his own wildlife series. However, his winning short film, "Adapt," left audiences and judges moved and inspired, proving to Nat Geo WILD just how much experience and unmistakable talent the aspiring filmmaker possessed. Two years later, DeAndrade's dream of using his passion for filmmaking to showcase his love for wildlife has become a reality - today at Wildscreen, Nat Geo WILD announced its new digital series, Untamed With Filipe DeAndrade, premiering on the network's YouTube Channel in March 2017.

Follow DeAndrade and his two best friends as they travel the United States in search of the most diverse, iconic and unexpected animal species this country has to offer. The crew has already captured stunning behaviors in locations like the bayous of Louisiana, where they chronicled the vicious realities of life as a hummingbird, and the shores of South Carolina, where they witnessed dolphins launching themselves out of the water to catch a bite to eat. There are surprises at every turn as they make their way from coast to coast in "Florence the Manbulance," an ambulance that DeAndrade converted into a camper that serves as the crew's home on the road.

"I first saw the deeply personal and connected storytelling Filipe was capable of during the Wild to Inspire filmmaking competition and I immediately knew that his talent, unbridled passion and irreverent sense of humor were the right fit for the Nat Geo WILD family," said Geoff Daniels, executive vice president and general manager of Nat Geo WILD. "Untamed is the perfect addition to our growing Nat Geo WILD Everywhere offerings and I can't wait to see how our viewers react to Filipe's infectious enthusiasm."

Untamed With Filipe DeAndrade is 10 episodes and is produced by Comfort Theory for Nat Geo WILD. Each episode captures a short story of an epic wildlife encounter in the U.S. Fans can keep up with DeAndrade and his crew through their Instagram accounts @filipe_deandrade and @thecomforttheory, as well as Nat Geo WILD's Facebook page, as they chronicle their adventures on the road.

"I believe in using the power of photography and film to encourage others to fall in love with the wild," said DeAndrade. "I hope that Untamed will inspire Americans to recognize that what we have here rivals anything else in the natural world. And through that, hopefully they fall in love with it and fight to protect it. If somehow, while sifting through homemade meatloaf recipes and videos of French bulldogs farting in their sleep, people come across Untamed on the internet and are engaged, we've done our job ... and I get to road trip across America in 'Florence the Manbulance' with my best friends, doing what we've always dreamed of doing. How wild is that!"
