QUOTES FROM THE PRODUCERS
QUOTE FROM WRITER/DIRECTOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BRANNON BRAGA
"THE END IS NYE is a relationship show -- it's about our relationship with nature and how it can end in total disaster. It's also about how science can help that relationship to survive and thrive. Yes, THE END IS NYE is terrifying, but our ultimate goal is to boost human confidence with a welcome jolt of optimism about the future and scientific understanding."
QUOTE FROM WRITER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/HOST BILL NYE
"Right now our world is a very scary place, and yet full of opportunities to make life better for all of us - for everyone on Earth. Speaking of Earth, the big idea behind The End Is Nye is that for the first time in the history of our planet, we humans can control our fate. We can see the potential for these overwhelming disasters, and we have the means to avoid them. With science, we can change the world."
