Animal Planet executives officially announced today that the critically-acclaimed documentary The Cove will hit the network this summer. “The Cove is just the type of groundbreaking, provocative film that belongs on Animal Planet,” says Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. “The film exposed an ugly reality that was veiled from the world for too long a time. We’re honored to bring this remarkable film and the issue of dolphin conservation to television audiences.”

Winner of the 2010 Academy Award® for Best Documentary, The Cove is an astounding piece of investigative journalism with the heart of an action thriller. Led by Louie Psihoyos, co-founder of the Ocean Preservation Society, and Richard O’Barry, an internationally recognized authority on dolphin training who is best known for his work on the 1960’s TV show “Flipper,” the film follows a high-tech dive team on a mission to discover the truth about the international dolphin capture trade as practiced in Taiji, Japan. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide.

In addition to winning the Audience Award at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, the film has also earned the prestigious National Board of Review Award for Best Documentary and has been listed on many critic’s “best films for 2009” lists. It currently enjoy an incredible 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The premiere will happen Sunday, August 29th at 9PM/ET on Animal Planet.
