New York, May 27, 2010 - Sundance Channel and GREY GOOSE Entertainment(R) today announced the return of Iconoclasts for its fifth season. The critically-acclaimed program, described as "one of the best documentary series on television," by USA Today, will feature iconic names in film, food, science and culture as part of the series' fifth season. The first episode will debut on the Sundance Channel, Saturday, October 2nd at 9pm et/pt.

"When you look at the 60 people we've covered in Iconoclasts over these five seasons you see a roster of some of the brightest and most creative stars in the worlds of the arts and entertainment, business and community. And the unique and intimate format of this show allows us to not only understand their work, but to be inspired by their risk-taking and originality," comments Sarah Barnett, EVP and General Manager of Sundance Channel.

In each hour-long episode of the six-part series, Iconoclasts pairs two creative visionaries from different fields who come together to discuss their lives, influences, passions and creative processes. The episodes will include the following celebrities: Academy Award(R) winning actress Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Aviator, I'm Not There) and prominent professor and climate change scientist Tim Flannery; Tony Award(R) winning actor Hugh Jackman (X-Men, Australia, The Boy from Oz) and world renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; Academy Award winning actress Charlize Theron (Monster, North Country, The Cider House Rules) and award-winning primatologist Jane Goodall, among others.

In a fresh and original approach to the traditional interview program format, Iconoclasts captures the essence of these headline-makers through the eyes of the creative innovators who respect and admire them the most. During the segments, the pairs visit each other's worlds and share their inspirations and motivations that have made them who they are today.

"Iconoclasts is unique in that it provides viewers with an inside glimpse into the real people behind the public personae," comments Emil Jattne, Senior Brand Manager, GREY GOOSE Entertainment. "Over the years, we have featured an incredible array of leading innovators who have had a profound impact on culture, and this year's lineup is no different."

The fifth season of Iconoclasts is co-produced by @radical media and GREY GOOSE Entertainment and directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky (the filmmakers behind Brother's Keeper and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster).

Former pairings include: Samuel L. Jackson and Bill Russell, Tom Ford and Jeff Koons, Mario Batali and Michael Stipe, Brian Grazer and Sumner Redstone, Renee Zellweger and Christiane Amanpour, Robert Redford and Paul Newman, Eddie Vedder and Laird Hamilton, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Alice Waters, Quentin Tarantino and Fiona Apple, Isabella Rossellini and Dean Kamen, Paul Simon and Lorne Michaels, Dave Chappelle and Maya Angelou, Sean Penn and Jon Krakauer, Alicia Keys and Ruby Dee, Mike Myers and Deepak Chopra, Howard Schultz and Norman Lear, Wynton Marsalis and John Besh, Madeleine Albright and Ashley Judd, Desmond Tutu and Richard Branson, Stella McCartney and Edward Ruscha, Tony Hawk and Jon Favreau, Bill Maher and Clive Davis, Venus Williams and Wyclef Jean and Cameron Diaz and Cameron Sinclair.
