Breakthrough (2015–2017)

National Geographic

1 Primetime Emmy® Award Nomination

BREAKTHROUGH provides a thought-provoking and imaginative perspective on scientific discovery as it unfolds. Focused on scientists and explorers dedicated to solving the infinite problems of our finite world, viewers can watch as the world’s most curious minds eschew conventional thinking in order to rebuild, reimagine and revolutionize life, as we know it. Given the magnitude of the stories, each installment of the series is helmed by a premiere director. And while the breakthrough itself provides the heartbeat for the hour, the vision of the explorers in front of the camera and that of the director behind it merge to create a unique lens through which the breakthrough is experienced.
