Meerkat Manor Animal PlanetOver Memorial Day Weekend, Animal Planet is airing Meerkat Manor: The Story Begins in memory of Flower. Flower was the meerkat matriarch, who led the “Whiskers” clan. The movie was filmed over a seven-month time period, and it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The movie follows the Whiskers family, and it tells the early story of Flower, before she became the Manor’s famous first lady. Flower’s journey from birth to matriarch is covered. Viewers will get to see Flower go from a young, inexperienced meerkat to a family leader, while living in one of the harshest deserts on the planet.

The movie is narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, and it was produced in partnership with Oxford Scientific Films/Southern Star, Cambridge University and world-renowned animal behavioralist Professor Tim Clutton-Brock. Meerkat Manor: The Story Begins airs on Sunday, May 25 from 8 PM to 9:30 PM ET/PT on The Animal Planet.

    Love this series!! Sean Astin did fab job narrating. It’s like a soap but real! I miss Flower and the old “crew” but nice to see how her children are making out.
