Prophets of Science Fiction
Could be quite interesting.
Filmmaker Ridley Scott brings together scientists, writers and other thinkers to honor these Prophets of Science Fiction in a new TV series premiering Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on Science. Each episode focuses on a writer who helped explain and expand the world of science through the use of fiction. The series will use film clips, reenactments, illustrations and interviews with top thinkers — including RoboCop director Paul Verhoeven and theoretical physicist Michio Kaku — to tell the story of the author, and the modern-day scientific implications of what they wrote.
