Beverly Hills, CA -- Standing on the Serengeti is such a transformative experience that even the most citified person feels a profound connection to the planet. A deceptive stillness pervades the unsullied beauty, and in the silence of tall grasses and scrubby trees, life thrives. It also ends, brutally and with great efficiency. Capturing this exquisite landscape could feel like a travel poster – pretty, yet flat. Instead, Discovery’s epic Serengeti (premiering Sunday, Aug. 4) brings viewers into the lives of different animals. Expect to melt when you see the baby elephants, lions and baboons. What's entirely unexpected, though, is how caught up in their dramatic stories the audience is bound to become. This is not a casual viewing experience. It means something, and it matters.
