Cast of approximately 6 on-air kids selected from top young professionals in the New York metropolitan area with major acting credits. Emphasis on diversity and experience to develop a cast of engaging and intelligent African-American, Hispanic, Asian and Caucasian Asian male and female child actors who interact with each other-and connect to the viewers.

But they also have a healthy skepticism about adult explanations, which tend to be either condescending or overly complex.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Wild America is targeted to children ages 13-16. The key educational objective of the program is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American continent and their interaction with other animals and their environment. Throughout the series emphasis will be placed upon protecting endangered species and the impact that humans have while interacting in their environment. Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gathering, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect the children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series. Through this understanding, it is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as it exists in North America and learn to protect its natural species. This program is from the Retro Television Network (RTV)and is simulcast on WOPI-CA.

Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gathering, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect the children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series.
