Behind every great genius was a great rival – an unstoppable adversary whose incredible vision, determination and ambition is their match. Out of their
struggles came the world’s most brilliant inventions. AMERICAN GENIUS reveals the competitive forces behind history’s most remarkable races for innovation.
The series explores the rivalries, delving into the fierce power struggles, deceit, fluke timing and raw ambition out of which innovation was born.
Bold reenactments are woven together with expert interviews to shed new perspective on the backstories of innovation that have shaped our world.
The series consists of eight 1-hour episodes. Each episode will be shown 4 times each week, 2 times at the ATRF and 2 times in Building 549,
to accommodate various work locations and lunch schedules. The program will begin on Monday, January 4, and will conclude on Friday, February 26.
