F11 LOS ANGELES TIMES WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26 2000 TODAY ON TV AW ' - J San Diego Wild Animal Park I "The Keepers" visits the San Diego Wild Animal Park and captures hand-puppet feeding of a condor chick. Animal: Cable Network Is Wildly Popular were flipping through some of the documentary series Discovery had in the can. It certainly doesn't hurt that Discovery has a longtime relationship with the BBC; in the United Kingdom, "social docs"; documentaries that follow a sub-i ject or subjects for multiple episodesare wildly popular. "Big Cat Diary" came from the BBC, as did "Great African Wildlife Rescues" and "Vets in the Wild," which is merely the African portion of an ongoing series following young veterinarian Trude Mostue from her days in veterinarian school through, it would seem, perpetuity. Continued from Fl "Emergency Vets" and "Crocodile Hunter." "Emergency Vets," Animal Planet's first effort at original programming, has for more than three years and 100 episodes chronicled the daily drama of an emergency veterinary clinic in Denver. With its "ER"-like opening sequence, fast pace and heart-tugging story lines (who can turn away from a liquid-eyed golden retriever struggling to walk again?), the show has created a team of unlikely celebrities "Emergency Vet" intern Steven Petersen was named People magazine's "Sexiest Animal Lover" last year. ; But Australian herpatologist and genuine crazy man Steve Irwin and his stalwart wife, Terri, stars of "Crocodile Hunter," remain king and queen of Animal Planet. What began as a series of home videos documenting the exploits of Irwin wrastlin' crocs at his Queensland wildlife park have become a series of worldwide adventures as the couple travels the globe in search of dangerous, and endangered, species. Steve's pop-eyed enthusiasm and native expletives ("Crikey! Isn't she a litde beyoouuty?") have just recently pushed him into the realm of pop culture icon. The Internet roils with rumors of his demise at the fangs of some heinous reptile, he's been spoofed on "Saturday Night Live" and "South Park," Schwarzenegger and the Dixie Chicks have requested personal audiences, and he and Terri have had to hire a support team simply to answer the hundreds of e-mails they receive daily. "Steve is our first home-grown celebrity," says Clark Bunting, senior vice president and general manager of Animal Planet. "Now when we bring him over here, we need security at the airports. He gets overwhelmed by fans." Shows Creating New Celebrities This season may well create a whole new cast of local heroes: "The Keepers," which debuted in January, is a behind-the-scenes look at the San Diego Wild Animal Park watching them prepare rneals for the park's hundreds of various carnivores is a lesson in itself. Who knew you could buy jumbo sacks of frozen rats? ' "The folks at Animal Planet warned us that we might have some new celebrities on our hands," says Ted Molter, head of marketing for San Diego Zoo and Animal Park. "And the response so far has been very good. So we've done some media training with our staff." : Not a usual part of a veterinarian's job description. ', Also new are "You Lie Like a Dog," a what's-my-line type game show for pet owners and animal professionals, and "Call of the Wild," the channel's foray into original fictitious drama. This last recently brought Bunting and some of his staff out from their Bethesda, Md., headquarters to the Ritz-Carlton Huntington in Pasadena for the semiannual television critics tour, where they presented the cast of "Call of the Wild," including Kavic, the Mala-mute mix from Vancouver who will star as Buck. The Ritz graciously made an exception to its no-pets policy; things could have been so much worse, after all last year, an alligator, a boa constrictor and a Gila monster made themselves comfortable among the mirrors and gilt. "They were very grateful it was just a dog," says Matt Katzive, director of publicity for Animal Planet. "None of those messy insurance forms to fill out." The network has managed to grow despite its seeming refusal to get with the postmodern programnothing could be further from the currently requisite spe- APWide World Photos A firefighter comforts a dog on Animal Planet's "Breed All About It" cial-effects-driven big-star vehicle than a documentary about termites. But then you have to consider the demographics. Animal Planet was created by a parent for parents seeking something substantial without the random mayhem and partial nudity of most adult fare or the manic noise and spastic movement that colors much of "children's" TV. "Four or five years ago, we were looking at how to position ourselves in the coming digital services," says Bunting, then a senior vice president at Discovery. "One idea was a natural history program. At the time my kids were 6 and 4, and there was not a lot of programming that I felt comfortable watching with them. I thought, I'm in the target demo, I'll just program it for me." Starting Small Leads to Bigger Plans Bunting started small the original business plan had Animal Planet reaching 20 million homes by 2003 using mostly library material from Discovery. That includes some wildlife documentaries and a lot of classic animal shows including "Lassie," "Flipper" and "Gentle Ben," shows that now appear in the wee hours of the morning, East and West Coast time. "I figured I could just repackage these shows, have some fun with them, but it didn't really work," Bunting says now. "The local stations were calling me saying, 'This is all well and good, but you have to invest in original programming.' " Sticking to his original family-viewing premise, Bunting rejected the typical "Wild Kingdom" model, mainly because so much of it was violent. "I wanted natural history, but not a show that would force you to explain the brutality of nature to your terrified kids." He also wanted characters, people who would provide a sense of relationship to the animals and continuity for the viewers. He came up with the idea of following a veterinary practice what would eventually become "Emergency Vets" but even that had obstacles at first. He called Jim Gerber, executive producer with Rocket Pictures, who jumped on the idea. "We followed a country vet, which I thought would be great. But the first episode had him performing a caesarean section on a cow. Unbelievable. I mean, he slices this cow and sticks his arm in and there's all this blood and we're sitting there in the Discovery offices watching this tape and I said, 'Oh, Jim, oh man, this is not it.' " A few weeks later, as deadlines loomed, Gerber came up with the Denver veterinary, which proved to be a success surpassing even Bunting's expectations. "If you had said to me three years ago, 'Can you get 100 episodes out of this?' I would have said no. But people really respond to the show everyone with a pet understands how traumatic rushing to the vets can be," says Bunting, who has two cats. While "Emergency Vets" was gcstating, Bunting and his staff Croc Hunter Is for Real and More During their search, they also turned up the Irwin tapes, a few of which had appeared on Discovery. Bunting saw in them the seeds of an empire. "I thought if this guy is for real, and I wasn't at all sure he was, then there is definitely something there," he says. So off he flew to meet the Croc Hunter, the first of a series of meetings that Bunting's wife calls his "annual near-death experience." Irwin, he discovered, was realer than real and during the next three years the Croc Hunter became Animal Planet's centerpiece, expanding its purview from reptiles Down Under to multiple species Tasmanian devils, orangutans, sea turtles, cave worms. Crocs and snakes are still the critters of choice, but the Irwins are staunch, and democratic, conservationists, traveling the world to explain the habits and often precarious plight of many species. They also have a lot of episodes (40 thus far) to fill, and as Bunting says, "there's only so much you can do in Australia." To ensure that Animal Planet doesn't air any show that might be considered detrimental to animals in any way, Bunting and his staff keep in constant contact with a wide variety of animal experts from the Humane Society to the World Wildlife Fund to some of the countries' more illustrious zoos. In fact, since the beginning, Bunting and Gerber wanted to do a series that went behind the scenes at a zoo. Then last year the San Diego Wild Animal Park agreed to let a film crew follow some of its staff around as it tended the park's 3,200 animals, which became the foundation for "The Keepers." Animals whose needs go way beyond feeding-one recent episode traveled the frozen depths of one of the world's largest zoological sperm banks and dealt with the issue of animal birth control; another followed an ophthalmologist on his rounds. "It's a great educational tool for students and kids," Molter says. "Everything takes place out in the open, so people can see what really happens." The cable channel is also introducing original dramas this year both movies and series. "Call of the Wild" was its first, premiering with a two-hour movie at the end of March, followed by 13 hourlong episodes that air weekly. Also in production is "The Trial of Old Drum," a true story about a dog accused of a crime he didn't commit. "And we'd love to be able to premiere big-screen movies, like 'Babe,' " Bunting says. Because it all comes down to the animals. "There are cycles in TV," Bunting says. "The baby boomers were raised on 'Flipper' and 'Gentle Ben' more people became marine biologists because of Flipper than Jacques Cousteau. The boomers have a real consciousness of conservation, and that is what a lot of our shows are about. Bringing endangered species into your home. People love animals. It's genetic. And besides," he adds, "we're having a great time.

ABC holds a commanding advantage for the official TV season, having won 21 of 31 weeks. With four weeks remaining, the only suspense involves CBS and NBC, which will vie for second place in terms of total audience through sweeps. ABC's "The Miracle Maker" delivered only so-so ratings on Easter Sunday, attracting 1.5 million fewer viewers than the network averages with "The Wonderful World of Disney." The animated movie National Nielsen Vlewership is one of three IV productions this season regarding the life of Jesus, with a CBS miniseries scheduled for next month, following an NBC movie that drew 16.7 million viewers in November. Buoyed by its "Millionaire" lead-in, the newsmagazine "2020 Downtown" posted a rare victory over an "ER" rerun Thursday. ABC News didn't fare nearly as well with its "Earth Day" special, despite the much-lampooned participation of teen heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprto. First-year NBC dramas continue to show promise, as "Third Watch" raced past two competing freshmen series last week, ABC's "Once and Again" and CBS' "Family Law." BRIAN LOWRY Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (April 17-23) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.
