WATCH FOR A SNEAK PEEK:
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Fiercely independent, innately brilliant, eternally curious, Einstein changed the way we view the universe. And this much-acclaimed new drama series will change the way we view this legendary physicist and international icon.
From his early failures and achievements in the world of academics, to his emotionally fraught search for love and human connection, Genius paints a portrait of the real Albert Einstein in all his complexity.
Based on the book Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson, the series charts his humble origins and struggle as a rebellious young thinker striving to be recognized by the academic establishment. It follows his escape to America from Nazi Germany, his two marriages, numerous affairs and finally, his acceptance by his peers and celebrity status following the disclosure of the theory of relativity.
Produced by Academy Award®- winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, and with a standout international cast, Genius is a beautifully produced, sweeping historical biography that grips from its opening scenes, right up to its final episode.
