From Revelations Entertainment, the Producers of the Emmy-Nominated Hit Series The Story Of God With Morgan Freeman, New Series Expands Hit Franchise Beyond Religion To Explore Broader Topics Including Love, Power, Belief and Freedom

(Washington, D.C. - April 19, 2017) National Geographic announced today the greenlight of a new series The Story Of Us With Morgan Freeman, from the creators of the critically acclaimed series The Story Of God with Morgan Freeman.

At a time when global events seem to be driving cultures apart, The Story Of Us aims to uncover the fundamental forces that keep our societies together, and to reveal the common humanity that lies inside each one of us. Each of the six hourlong episodes will explore a single fundamental force or topic, including love, belief, power, war and peace, rebellion and freedom.

"It is no surprise that our global audience has warmly embraced Morgan as part of the National Geographic family. The beauty of this franchise is that Morgan represents all of us on his personal quest to understand these topics."

"I've been given the incredible opportunity to take viewers on a new global journey to understand how human culture has taken on so many remarkable forms," added Freeman, who co-founded Revelations Entertainment with Lori McCreary. Both are joined as executive producers by James Younger. "We're exploring how primal forces, such as love, has shaped human culture around the world and where it will take us in the future."
