Plot Synopsis

At the tail of the great rift valley, in Zambia's Luangwa Valley, two neighboring prides lay claim to the land. The mighty lionesses of the Hollywood pride have held onto power for years, but without any males to mate with, they are at risk of dying out. Nearby, the 17-member MK pride is ruled by aging males who are struggling to maintain their reign. When four young nomadic males show up, they bring with them disruption and violence. Wildlife filmmakers Nathan Pilcher and Sam Davies are in the middle of the action, embedded deep in the park for 3 months. BIG CAT COUNTRY had its U.S. premiere on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 8pm ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
On Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 8pm ET/PT, Smithsonian Channel premiered "The Next Dynasty," the finale of BIG CAT COUNTRY. The all-female Hollywood pride returns to their prime territory, forcing a showdown with the Nomads. While the two groups have had violent confrontations in the past, the Hollywood lionesses need to find males if they hope to secure their future, and the Nomad brothers could be the perfect mates. This could be the start of a powerful dynasty. Meanwhile, a potential disaster strikes the MK pride, forcing the lions to face their toughest moment yet.
