NEW YORK, Sept. 9 -- Sundance Channel and GREY GOOSE Entertainment(R) are set to debut the anticipated fifth season of the critically acclaimed documentary series of Iconoclasts on Saturday, October 2nd at 9pm et/pt. Each hour-long episode of the six-part series that will air on Sundance Channel, pairs two creative visionaries from different fields who come together to discuss their lives, influences, passions and creative processes.

The new season features an unprecedented roster of innovators in the fields of entertainment, science, food, athletics and the arts including: Academy Award(R) winning actress Charlize Theron (Monster, North Country, The Cider House Rules) and award-winning primatologist Jane Goodall; Grammy Award(R) winning musician Lenny Kravitz and film director and producer Lee Daniels (Precious, Monster's Ball); Tony Award(R) winning actor Hugh Jackman (X-Men, Australia, The Boy from Oz) and world renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; 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; NBA player Steve Nash and Academy Award(R) winning filmmaker Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Parenthood) and illusionist David Blaine and artist Chuck Close.

Set against such unique and personal backdrops as Jane Goodall's chimpanzee refuge in the Republic of Congo and Lenny Kravitz's recording studio in the Bahamas, each episode of Iconoclasts provides an intimate look into the lives, work, past experiences and aspirations that have made each icon who they are today. Episodes include:

Theron is introduced to adolescent chimps as she and Dr. Goodall discuss the issues facing the young people of Africa and the African wildlife. Charlize explains how the loss of her father at a young age affected her, while Dr. Goodall describes what it was like being sent into the dense African Jungle in her early twenties and discovering just how similar chimpanzees are to humans.

Kravitz shares his process with Daniels in his personal recording studio and Daniels does some Hollywood wheeling and dealing on the phone in his hotel room.
