Dogs in the Land of Lions premieres nationwide Wednesday, November 21 at 8 p.m. on PBS (check local listings).

Filmed over two years by cinematographer Kim Wolhuter (Nature: The Cheetah Children), Nature takes viewers into the heart of an African wild dog family.  When lions kill her mate, a wild dog mother called Puzzles suddenly must raise two generations of pups all on her own without the help of a pack.  Witness the loyalty and selflessness that sets wild dogs apart from other large, social carnivores in this deeply intimate portrayal of motherhood.  But in this unforgiving Zimbabwe wilderness, it turns out the top dogs are the big cats – lions are the wild dogs’ ultimate enemies.  The young dogs provide some light-hearted moments while discovering the world around them, but as they grow up, they must face these eternal enemies on their journey to independence.
