■ DEAD BY DAWN
Nat Geo Wild, 9 p.m.
New Series! This six-part program described as the “first ever horror nature series” comes, appropriately, from the production company that created The Walking Dead. But the real-world horror captured here doesn’t require makeup effects, as the series shows how terrifying the natural world can get once the sun goes down. Each episode is inspired by classic, modern and cult horror films, using innovative storytelling techniques to infuse suspense, tension and eeriness into terrifying stories of nocturnal life in the wild.
