THE STORY OF US WITH MORGAN FREEMAN


The Story of Us with Morgan Freeman focuses on topics of our shared humanity. Each of the six episodes will look at a force that has shaped humans since the beginning of time: power, belief, rebellion, war & peace, freedom and love. Morgan again travels around the world to meet people - from powerful world leaders, to ordinary people with extraordinary stories - to hear stories that are relatable on a global scale.
