Discovery Channel’s new Sunday-night miniseries SERENGETI is unusual. This is not because it is set in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, Africa, which contains large populations of many of the continent’s most notable wildlife; the network has aired many documentaries made there. However, SERENGETI is not a documentary, but rather a drama, created by Simon Fuller and directed by award-winning wildlife documentarian John Downer, both of whom are producers on the miniseries. Downer shot footage of real Serengeti lions, elephants, hyenas, baboons and other animals going about their lives, which has been edited into a storyline, narrated in the […]Read On »

The actor from the Netherlands was also a series regular on TREME and recurred on NASHVILLE. But what Huisman has really been known for in the past few years is playing the object of female desire on propulsive genre fare. Until recently, he played Daario Naaharis, consort of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen, on GAME OF THRONES and the former arms dealer Cal who fathered a child with Tatiana Maslany’s Sarah Manning on ORPHAN BLACK. Now Huisman […]Read On »
