by | Sep 19, 2023 | News

Digital content studio and media network Little Dot Studios has partnered with Yale Climate Connections (YCC) to produce a 12-part digital-first YouTube series “Wild World of Extreme Weather.”

The series, hosted by US meteorologist and weather presenter Alexandra Steele, will explore the science behind extreme weather events, their impact on people and communities, and what we can do to mitigate the risks.

Each episode will focus on a different aspect of extreme weather, such as heatwaves, hurricanes, wildfires, and droughts. The series will also highlight constructive solutions to reduce climate-related risks.

The series is being filmed in the United States by Alexandra Steele herself, with the content edited in the UK. It will feature original content and YCC’s archive catalogue of daily broadcast radio programming and online reports on climate change.

In addition to the 12 mid-long YouTube format, certain episodes will be converted into Shorts to increase discoverability and engagement for the series on YouTube.

Sara Peach, Editor-in-Chief, Yale Climate Connections, said: “Extreme weather is getting worse as the climate changes, and the public is sitting up and taking notice. We’re excited to launch a series that helps viewers understand what’s happening and what they can do about it.”

Hal Arnold, Head of Production, Little Dot Studios,: “We’ve a long history of working with brands in creating engaging social impact content that drives significant reach. Partnering with a prestigious institution such as Yale, enables us to bring our YouTube expertise to their messaging and educational content. The ‘Wild World of Extreme Weather’ series is a great mix of original and catalogue content which is designed to be platform native. We’re really looking forward to continuing to produce new content each month on such important subjects.”

YCC joins a wealth of social impact clients in which Little Dot Studios has produced content for, including Bloomberg, UNGA, CNBC, DAVOS, and WEF.
