Heads Up America: 'The Durrells' Premieres Sunday On PBS

Back in May, Henry gave a warm welcome to Milo Parker as the newest ambassador for Durrell Wildlife. The young actor plays Gerald Durrell in the new TV series based on the life of the conservationist, and this Sunday the show premieres on PBS.

According to the charity, the series follows a young Gerald Durrell and his magical childhood on the Greek island of Corfu in the 1930s. It was an instant hit with audiences overseas, and a second series is on the way.
