Genius, The Man Behind The Mind

A TV Series about the life of Albert Einstein.

National Geographic presents GENIUS, the network's first-ever scripted series, based on the Walter Isaacson book "Einstein: His Life and Universe."

This American anthology period drama TV series was developed by Noah Pink and Kenneth Biller and was premiered back on April 25, 2017.

Produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, Its first episode was also directed by Ron Howard.

The all-star cast includes Geoffrey Rush as Professor Einstein, Johnny Flynn as Albert in his youth, and Emily Watson as the scientist's second wife — and first cousin — Elsa Einstein.

Over ten episodes, the series takes Einstein's story beyond academia's halls to explore his struggles to be a good husband and father, and a man of principle during a period of global unrest.

His daringly creative mind often landed him in trouble with his loved ones and peers, but it helped him to usher in groundbreaking discoveries that reshaped modern science.

The first season chronicles two periods in the life of Albert Einstein: the beginning as a patent clerk struggling to gain a teaching position and doctorate.

The second one features him as a scientist respected for his development of relativity theory.
