National Geographic Greenlights New Global Documentary Series the Curiosity of Jeff Goldblum (W.T.)

Academy- and Emmy nominated Jeff Goldblum ("Jurassic Park," "Explorer") Hosts 12-Part Series that Explores the Extraordinary Science Behind the World's Most "Ordinary" Things

WASHINGTON & LOS ANGELES -- National Geographic and Academy- and Emmy nominated Jeff Goldblum ("Jurassic Park," "Independence Day," "The Big Chill") partner on global documentary series THE CURIOSITY OF JEFF GOLDBLUM (W.T.). The twelve-part series from National Geographic Studios, taps into curiosity seeker Goldblum as he embarks on a journey across the globe to uncover the extraordinary stories behind the world's most "ordinary" things.

Everything is connected... the Science of life is all around us, inextricably interwoven in our everyday lives. It's in the food we eat, the sports we play and the music we listen to. This eye-opening series throws us outside of our comfort zone with globetrotting host Goldblum who asks the curious questions we never knew we had, probing the origins and unpacking the incredible connections behind the most unassuming subjects. Along the way we'll uncover how even the most deceptively simple things - from balloons to coffee - have astonishing backstories.

"We are thrilled to partner with megastar Jeff Goldblum who shares our insatiable curiosity and passion for learning," says Courteney Monroe, CEO, National Geographic Global Networks. "This series is the perfect platform for Jeff to use his uniquely infectious and approachable charm to take viewers on an unexpected and surprising journey."

"National Geographic has a knack for developing smart, immersive narratives that expand our understanding of the world around us in creative and entertaining ways," says Goldblum. "Curiosity is a fundamental human trait; THE CURIOSITY OF JEFF GOLDBLUM (W.T.) puts me in the driver's seat, guiding viewers on a mind-blowing adventure where we break down the unexpectedly complex science behind seemingly basic things."

In each 30-minute episode, cameras follow Goldblum on a dynamic investigation of the world's most extraordinary "ordinary" things - getting to the bottom of how we got them, how we make them and how they continue to impact our daily lives, as each journey of discovery has surprising connections, turns and revelations. Ice cream, baseball, subways, cereal, even toilet paper have unlikely origins and are full of surprising, hidden science of human nature, that will shape our future. It's a fascinating universe out there, and Goldblum takes us on his unconventional ride, tackling experiments, busting myths and encountering scientific experts to reveal the astounding science that lies right beneath our eyes.

THE CURIOSITY OF JEFF GOLDBLUM (W.T.) is produced by National Geographic Studios. Brian Lovett is executive producer.
