Produced by Seth McFarlane and hosted by Neil Degrasse Tyson (hope I spelled it right).
Seth McFarlane to produce "Cosmos" sequel for Fox - Yahoo! News
I'm glad. We need people to be exposed to science at this point in time.
Fox announced Friday that MacFarlane has teamed up with Sagan's closest collaborators -- his widow, Anne Druyan, and astrophysicist Steven Soter -- to produce "Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey," a 13-part sequel to the Emmy-winning 1980 PBS docu-series -- pretty much billions and billions of light years away from what you might expect the guy who conceived of little Stewie to tackle next.
"Never more than at this moment in the modern era have we needed a profound reminder of the colossally important and exciting role that science, space exploration and the human quest for knowledge must continue to play in our development as a species," MacFarlane said in a statement. "We should be vigorously exploring the solar system by now, and who better to inspire us to get there than Ann Druyan, Steven Soter, Neil deGrasse Tyson and, of course, Carl Sagan."
Added Fox president of entertainment Kevin Reilly, ""This is a golden opportunity to introduce 'Cosmos' to a new generation.
Also, there are rumors that it will air on primetime on Fox so that many people will be exposed to it. I don't particularly like Family Guy but I've gained respect for McFarlane.
Workers of the world, awaken!
Break your chains. demand your rights.
All the wealth you make is taken
By exploiting parasites.
Shall you kneel in submission
From your cradles to your graves?
ls the height of your ambition
To be good and willing slaves?
