That didn’t take long.

Animal Planet execs know a good thing when they see it — and the Oscar-winning Cove documentary was apparently all they needed for the creation of a new series called Dolphin Warriors. From the LA Times:

The series picks up where the movie leaves off and, like the film, stars animal activist Ric O’Barry. Two episodes of the series — which is being executive produced by O’Barry’s son, Lincoln — have already been completed, although a premiere date has yet to be announced, Ric O’Barry said. Animal Planet says the series may premiere in the fall, after “The Cove” debuts on the channel this summer.

The series will reportedly address questions over whether the slaughter is continuing — and if the Japanese public is aware of the high levels of mercury present in dolphin meat.

“Ric and Lincoln O’Barry are fascinating men with an important mission and remarkable stories to share,” Marjorie Kaplan, general manager and president of Animal Planet told the LA Times. “We’re delighted to be working with them on their next project.”

Wonderful news!
