Zachary Quinto will narrate a new PBS-BBC Studios Nova series called The Planets.
The five-part series will air on Wednesdays at 9 PM on PBS. My local PBS is airing two episodes tonight; Inner Worlds, and Mars, so be aware that there may be two episodes tonight and not just one.
“The series will give viewers a glimpse of the eight planets of our solar system, as well as some other worlds you might recognize — famous moons like Europa or Titan and dwarf [former] planets like Pluto. The series pulls together footage from orbiters, landers and rovers spread across the solar system, combined with planetary science research and computer-generated imagery.”
“This is a drama played out on a cosmic scale,” said Chris Schmidt, executive producer for NOVA. “In five gripping stories, we journey through each planet’s past and present, weaving through plot twists as they make their way through time and space.”
