US TEAM

At Earth Touch USA we love telling animal and nature stories, with a strong human connection. But our shows and development go far beyond animals and nature into science, archeology, crime, cars, DIY, air safety and the entire human experience.

We are a full-service production company at the forefront of content creation for TV and digital platforms. We specialize in producing innovative, non-fiction programming from development through delivery.

The Guardians series for Animal Planet follows an extraordinary, Long Island NY based, group of ex cons, ex cops, former gang members, military vets, private investigators, concerned  and a dreadlocked, biker veterinarian called Moose, who go to amazing lengths to help animals in bad situations. Polar Bear Town for Smithsonian Channel is a blue-chip reality series following the lives of people in the tiny Canadian outpost of Churchill, where every year 1000 bears migrate through the town with 800 inhabitants and 10,000 tourists.

We know how to make difficult places easy to work in, from the icy wastes of the Canadian Arctic to the crocodile infested swamps of Northern Australia for Monster Week’s Lair of The Killer Crocs. We have also recently filmed in the the Middle East for The Legend Hunter  as well as the Peruvian Amazon and Chile . We’re equally at home in in the big city and the world of showbiz. From Wags To Riches  covered the fantastic world of leading Broadway animal director and trainer Bill Berloni, his family, including 30 dogs along with the Humane Society of New York.

We like to flip the script on people’s perceptions. Coming soon a show about animals that kill and eat sharks! Not the Jaws you know!  Also in the works a colorful company of tiny cabin builders, a celebrity murder show and a car renovation series.

Earth Touch… we cover anything and everything that touches the earth!
