I have two words for you: Penguin. Town. And honestly, need I say more?
Netflix’s upcoming docuseries will let you spend the summer with a colony of African penguins. The eight-episode series is narrated by Patton Oswalt. If you somehow need more convincing to watch, check out the trailer below.
Here’s the official description of the series from Netflix:
You’ve never met penguins like these before. Forget ice and snow, this rowdy colony of African penguins are hitting the sun-drenched beaches and breaking all the rules. Every summer, these tuxedoed birds vie for prime real estate on the sandy shores of Simon’s Town, south of Cape Town, and stir things up. While humans apply sun block and wax their surfboards, these endangered little guys, who have adapted to heat and can travel long distances, are causing traffic jams in the streets and bringing mayhem to this tropical paradise. Their mission: find a mate, make babies and not go extinct!
Filled with boisterous shenanigans and loads of adorable penguins — from the troublemaking “Car Park Gang” to the sweet and cuddly newlyweds Mr. & Mrs C. — this eight-part series from Red Rock Films about the real lives of African penguins brings flipper-flapping fun and drama. Join the ride … this town is gonna get painted black and white!
Penguin Town includes eight 30-minute episodes. The series releases on Netflix June 16.
