Emre Izat


I’m a voraciously curious television professional experienced in writing, directing, producing, fundraising, and camerawork across genres including natural history, science, engineering, history, health and lifestyle, crime, and music. I’m especially fascinated with wildlife and science stories, and have a deep love of elephants. Over the past thirteen years, I’ve developed and produced award-winning documentary series and one-off specials for multiple global networks including National Geographic, Discovery, History, ID, MSNBC, TLC, and PBS. In addition to directing, I have researched and developed numerous wildlife films for National Geographic's Natural History Unit, including Mystery Gorilla and Untamed Americas, among many others. Career highlights include witnessing the birth of a baby elephant, touring the LEGO factory on a robotic crane, and riding along with a narcotics unit on a meth lab raid.
