In the past, the Milwaukee county zoo has been one of the top attractions in the United States.
Now, the zoo is expanding its focus with a TV show called Zoo TV.
The show will be airing in early 2019 on Fox Sports 1, with the network airing the first episode on Saturday nights at 9 p.m. and continuing until the end of the season on the channel.
The zoo has put together a short film and a short documentary called “Milwaukee County Zoo: Stories From The Zoo” that tells the stories behind the zoo.
The short film will be shown during the live stream of the show.
The Milwaukee county zookeepers are now working on a new short film, the “Milan County Zoo, The History and People of Milwaukee County,” that will be screened during the show on Saturday evenings at 9:30 p. and will be available on Fox TV starting in early 2020.
The short film features interviews with the people and wildlife that have made Milwaukee County one of America’s best-preserved zoos, including: Zoo Director of the Zoo, Charles “Chick” Dennison, the current director of the Milwaukee zoo, who was also the first African American to lead a zoo; Zoo Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Nancy A. Siegel, who led the zoo from 1989 to 1993; Zoo Veterinarian, Dr. Jennifer L. Wigdor, who retired in 2017 after more than 25 years of service; Zoo Director, Mary D. O’Neal, who served as Zoo Director from 1996 to 2005; and Zoo Director and Vice President, Nancy E. Hirsch, who became Zoo Director in 2005.
