was quite possibly the most impressive nature series of all time - and that's precisely why I'm so excited about Life
. In this follow-up series, BBC and the Discovery Channel leave viewers with a new perspective of more than 30 million different animals and plants we share our planet with. Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, the 11-hour series makes its debut this Sunday at 8-10pm ET|PT on the Discovery Channel.
“In Planet Earth the habitats took center stage,” says Susan Winslow, executive producer for the Discovery Channel and of Life
. “In Life,
