Lions don't haul their food up trees. But since the change in animal behavior, and discovering its root cause, is the entire premise of the series, this fits into that framework, and is not technically an error. See more »

I've enjoyed James Patterson's works before and wanted to see this production as it is so different to his earlier works. This is about wild animals that suddenly turn to hunting and killing humans deliberately and not because of the necessity as a source of food.

Lions have escaped from a L.A. zoo in America and are on a killing spree.Our heroine, played by Kristen Connolly as a sharp blogger and reporter, thinks it's because of a change of diet provided to the zoo by a suspect global food company and she enlists the help of a veterinary pathologist in her investigation. On the other side of the world, in Botswana,Africa, our hero,played by James Wolk, is discovering that lions are doing the same to tourists on safaris that he is working with.He saves a female French tourist from a lion 'kill' where all the other members of the safari have been killed.

Quite intriguing so far and could there be a connection with the big food company---- not likely as the attacks are affecting animals in the wild. How do our hero and heroine's paths cross (if at all)? All must be revealed in the future episodes and this opening sets it up nicely.
