DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, February 2019) National Geographic Global Television Networks President Courteney Monroe announced today at the network's TCA presentation that Suzan-Lori Parks, Pulitzer Prize award-winning playwright of "Topdog/Underdog," will be executive producer and showrunner for GENIUS: ARETHA FRANKLIN. This upcoming season will be the first-ever, definitive scripted miniseries on the life of the universally acclaimed Queen of Soul. Fox 21 Television Studios, the studio behind "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," "The Americans," "Homeland," "The People v. OJ: American Crime Story" and the two prior award-winning seasons of GENIUS, will also return to produce the next installment. Filming will start this summer for an early 2020 premiere on National Geographic Channels in 172 countries and 43 languages. National Geographic, the company behind the Academy Award-nominated FREE SOLO, premiered the first season of GENIUS in 2017, which starred Geoffrey Rush as the brilliant scientist Albert Einstein. Ken Biller was showrunner and creator for the multi-Emmy award winning GENIUS: PICASSO and GENIUS: EINSTEIN. GENIUS: EINSTEIN earned 10 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Limited Series, as well as Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for Rush. The follow-up season, GENIUS: PICASSO, starred Antonio Banderas as the titular Spanish painter, and matched much of the success of its predecessor, earning seven Emmy nominations - and two wins - as well as Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for Banderas. Legendary hit record producer Clive Davis and Atlantic Records Chairman and CEO Craig Kallman have also joined as executive producers. Imagine Entertainment has partnered with Warner Music Group for this third season, which will again be executive produced by Imagine's Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Francie Calfo; Gigi Pritzker and Rachel Shane (MWM Studios); and Sam Sokolow (EUE/Sokolow). Imagine's Anna Culp will serve as producer alongside Peter Afterman.
