More than three decades after the debut of "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," Carl Sagan's stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science, COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY sets off on a new voyage for the stars. Sagan's original creative collaborators - writer/executive producer Ann Druyan and astronomer Steven Soter - have teamed with Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD) to conceive a 13-part series that will serve as a successor to the Emmy Award- and Peabody Award-winning original series.

Hosted by renowned astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson ("Death By Black Hole," "Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier"), the series will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the legendary original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous Science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.

Carl Sagan's original series, "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," was first broadcast in 1980, and has been enjoyed by more than 750 million people worldwide.
