Steven Tyler Lends Music, Narration To TV Wildlife Show
Steven Tyler, Dave Matthews and Joan Jett may not be talking to the animals, but they'll be talking about them soon on your TV.
The three will join Christina Aguilera, Usher and Ellie Goulding as narrators in a unique six-show series called Hello World! It's slated to air as back-to-back episodes on the Discovery Channel over three consecutive Saturdays, starting on July 9th. Each artist voices one program, which is based around a song of theirs and tied into a specific wildlife-oriented theme, shot in the wild.
The episodes include:
Summer Wild, in which Tyler's recently-released country song "Red, White and You" serves as a backdrop to showing how North American prairie dogs, hawks, and wild mustangs spend their summers.
Save Me, in which Matthews follows rhinos, spadefoot toads, and manatees in their search for fresh water, and
Bad Reputation, in which Jett's song of the same name highlights the stories of many of the creatures we love to hate -- like wolves, alligators, and sharks -- and shows why they might just be getting a bad rap.
