Chimp Empire


Chimp Empire is a four part series for Netflix that presents a year in the life of the Ngogo Chimpanzees, the largest chimpanzee group ever discovered.

Directed by James Reed and written by James and Matt Houghton, the series explores the lives of the Ngogo chimps at a pivotal point in their history, following a split in the group and a growing conflict between the two new factions. Chimp Empire combines blue chip natural history production values with character-based narrative and follows a range of chimpanzee characters as they strive to survive and prosper in the difficult, complex and political world of Ngogo.

Chimp Empire was co-produced with Keo Films, narrated by two time Academy Award Winner Mahershala Ali and debuted on Netflix in 2023 to great acclaim.
