Nat Geo ropes in Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman for ‘The Story of God’
This April, National Geographic Channel and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman, are coming together to present ‘The Story of God’, the actor’s ultimate quest to uncover the meaning of life, God and all the questions in between. The actor who is known for playing larger than life characters (including ‘God’ in a number of movies), joins hands with Nat Geo to seek to understand how religion has evolved through the course of civilization, and how it has shaped the evolution of society.
The series will take viewers on a trip around the world to explore different cultures and religions. India being a country of many faiths and religions has been a strong focus in the series with large portions shot in Varanasi and Bodhgaya. The other locations include Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, Mayan temples in Guatemala and the pyramids of Egypt.
Commenting on the exclusive series, Swati Mohan, Business Head, India, FOX Networks Group said, “National Geographic has always taken topics of global significance and presented them as powerful stories to viewers. Story of God reinforces our commitment to give viewers unprecedented access to not just pertinent locations and unique content, but also world class talent and storytelling. Legendary actor Morgan Freeman narrating extraordinary stories of different beliefs, faiths and cultures, on an epic journey around the world – this is as grand as it gets.
