NatGeo Goes Undercover on Factory Farms

The wildlife media group’s new investigative series teams up with Mercy For Animals for an undercover exposé.

The National Geographic show Inside: Secret America explores the increasingly controversial animal-agriculture industry by going undercover on America’s factory farms. The show stars husband and wife, award-winning journalists Mariana van Zeller and Darren Foster; they team up with Mercy For Animals activists “Pete” and “Jane,” who conducted undercover exposés in the past on a Burger King dairy supplier and a Butterball turkey farm, which resulted in animal-cruelty convictions. The show’s hosts will also interview MFA Director of Investigations Matt Rice, who will talk about the rise of ag-gag legislature that seeks to make undercover animal industry investigations illegal.
