(Originally posted as a blog entry on Feb 16, 2014)On March 9, Fox premieres “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” a follow-up to Carl Sagan’s 13-part series “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage”. The original PBS series premiered in 1980 and explored our universe. Seth MacFarlane, the creator of “Family Guy” and “The Cleveland Show,” is teaming with Sagan’s widow Ann Druyan to executive produce the new 13-part series that continues to probe the stars this time narrated by the world’s most famous astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.
In an unprecedented move, Fox will air the premiere episode simultaneously on Sunday, March 9, 9-10 p.m. in the U.S. across ten 21st Century Fox networks. It was also announced that “Cosmos” will premiere on all 90 National Geographic Channels in 180 countries, as well as 120 Fox-branded channels in 125 countries, making this the largest global launch ever for a television series. The remainder of the series will air on Fox with Nat Geo rebroadcasting the episodes the next day.
Okay, I admit it - I am a nerd. I will be recording every episode on my local FOX channel... I only wish FOX broadcast in 1080i rather than 720p.
