The National Geographic Channel has always prided itself on its award-winning documentaries on various topics about the natural sciences, and the people at the forefront of these sciences. Now, however, they’re going to try their hand at turning documentaries into full-blown scripted miniseries, delving deeper into the untold stories of some of the most brilliant minds humankind has ever produced, with their bold new series, Genius.
Based on the 2007 book Einstein, His Life and Universe by journalist Walter Isaacson, Genius sees Einstein (wonderfully played by Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush, and English musician Johnny Flynn) tackling his turbulent life, from his rebellious years as a headstrong junior studying in the Luitpold Gymnasium, to his struggle in raising a family as a lowly patent clerk in Bern, Switzerland, all the way to his final years as a world-renowned theoretical physicist in Princeton, New Jersey. The ten-part miniseries seeks to reveal the man behind the mind, delving into Einstein’s happiness and heartbreak as he struggles to be a husband, a father, and a man of principle.
