Upcoming Discovery Impact film MOSQUITO is a timely in depth look at this very tiny, very dangerous creature, and how it is changing in unpredictable and unprecedented ways. The film chronicles the increasing global threat this tiny animal poses while emphatically raising the points that without an international coordinated effort, the world and its citizens are at risk for a historic pandemic that could put billions at risk of a fatal infection. The global crisis is highlighted in the worldwide premiere, Thursday, July 6 at 9PM, on Discovery Channel and Discovery networks around the world.
Mosquitoes kill more than 1 million people a year, many of whom are children. Today, rapid environmental shifts like climate change and the ease of international travel for both humans and goods have only increased the threat mosquitoes pose, hastening their spread around the globe. As mosquitoes are now able to survive and thrive in places they have never before – including Brazil, Florida, and as far north as Washington D.C. and New York – they are bringing diseases like Zika, dengue, and yellow fever to uncharted and unprepared parts of the world.
Shot on four continents, MOSQUITO features insights from world and health leaders as well as intimate stories of the men, women, and children who are living in fear that the next bite could be a deadly one.
MOSQUITO is narrated by actor Jeremy Renner and features interviews with leading experts, including former CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden and Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
