[via press release from FOX]

FOX BROADCASTING COMPANY AND NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL ANNOUNCE GLOBAL SERIES PREMIERE OF HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW SERIES "COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY"

COSMOS Set To Premiere Sunday, March 9, on FOX and Monday, March 10, on the National Geographic Channel

Series to Launch Globally on National Geographic Channels International Monday, March 10

Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) and National Geographic Channel (NGC) announced today the global series premiere of COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY, the thrilling new 13-part series from executive producer/writer Ann Druyan and executive producer Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, "Ted"). The highly anticipated series will premiere in the U.S. on Sunday, March 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, and encore with all-new bonus footage and behind-the-scenes content on the National Geographic Channel (NGC) Monday, March 10 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT).

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY will also premiere globally around the world on the National Geographic Channels in 170 countries and 45 languages and Monday, March 10 on Nat Geo MUNDO in the U.S.

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, MacFarlane has teamed with Sagan's original creative collaborators - writer/executive producer Druyan and co-writer, astronomer Steven Soter - to conceive the 13-part series that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series.

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY is hosted by renowned astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. As with the legendary original series, the new COSMOS is the saga of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. The series brings to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge, transporting viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest - and the smallest - scale.

The series invents new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts are presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY is produced by Cosmos Studios, the Ithaca, NY-based company Ann Druyan co-founded in 2000, and Fuzzy Door Productions, MacFarlane's company. Druyan and Steven Soter are the series' writers. Druyan, MacFarlane, Cosmos Studios President Mitchell Cannold and Brannon Braga (the "Star Trek" franchise, "24") will executive-produce the series.
