July 23, 2013
Entertainment Weekly | Fox has debuted the trailer for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, a follow-up to Carl Sagan’s iconic 1980 PBS series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Among sweeping shots of valleys and mountains are pictures of the solar system and the infinite blackness of areas of the universe. Part animation and part awe-inspiring real shots, the documentary series, hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, will premiere spring 2014 and hopefully get people excited about science.
Fox | More than three decades after the debut of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, Carl Sagan’s stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey sets off on a new voyage for the stars. Seth MacFarlane and Sagan’s original creative collaborators, writer and executive producer Ann Druyan and astronomer Steven Soter, have teamed to conceive a 13-part docu-series that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series.
Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the series will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale.
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the legendary original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.
Carl Sagan’s original series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage was first broadcast in 1980, and has been enjoyed by more than 750 million people worldwide.
