A £6m series with computer-generated prehistoric animals and a return to ITV drama for Stephen Fry have been announced by the channel.
Prehistoric is a semi-fictional six-part series
In Prehistoric, starting next month, presenter Nigel Marven will appear to travel back in time to try to save dinosaurs from extinction.
In Kingdom, Fry plays compassionate solicitor Peter Kingdom, whose life is overshadowed by his brother's death.
It is his first drama series for ITV since Jeeves and Wooster in the '90s.
The company behind BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs worked on the animation for Prehistoric.
Filming took place in Chile, Canada, Florida, Brazil, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
Marven said: "To make the footage appear realistic I just imagine it's really happening and scale up the excitement I'd feel for a modern 13ft alligator, for example, to the massive extinct crocodile Deinosuchus."
Kingdom is set in Fry's home county of Norfolk, and also stars Hermione Norris and Celia Imrie.
The actor said: "Kingdom does promise viewers a glimpse of the locations I love, and an hour in front of the television that will wash them in colours, textures, landscapes and characters that delight."
