A Curiosity Original 3-part special.

No need to travel to outer space to explore strange new worlds. There is alien life right under our noses — insects. They run our planet but are as different from us as possible, and as close to an alien life form that we’ll ever see here on Earth. This is their world… and their story.

The last two decades of research have revealed extraordinary new insights into the unexpectedly sophisticated insect world. Combined with modern cinematic technology and new techniques like electron microscopy and confocal microscopy, this landmark series captures insect behavior in ways never before possible.  There are no more limits to our journey here on Planet Insect.

Narrated by Kate Mulgrew, best known for her role as Capt. Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager.
