More than three decades after the debut of “Cosmos,” Carl Sagan’s stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science, FOX sets off on a voyage for the stars with COSMOS: A SPACE-TIME ODYSSEY. Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD) has teamed up with Sagan’s original creative collaborators – writer/producer Ann Druyan and astrophysicist Steven Soter – to conceive a 13-part “docu-series” that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series.
Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, COSMOS: A SPACE-TIME ODYSSEY will blast off on the FOX schedule in 2013.
“Never more than at this moment in the modern era have we needed a profound reminder of the colossally important and exciting role that science, space exploration and the human quest for knowledge must continue to play in our development as a species,” said MacFarlane. “We should be vigorously exploring the solar system by now, and who better to inspire us to get there than Ann Druyan, Steven Soter, Neil deGrasse Tyson and, of course, Carl Sagan.”
