On the heels of ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime
Odyssey’ US infotainment broadcaster National
Geographic Channel has announced at the
Television Critics Association Press Tour in
Pasadena, California the premiere of the
network’s first-ever late-night series, Star Talk,
hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse
Tyson (@neiltyson). The show will air globally in
171 countries.

Based on Tyson’s podcast of the same name,
the new series will bridge the intersection
between pop culture and science as it brings
together celebrities, comedians and scientists to
discuss the latest developments in our vast
universe.

He said, “To be able to continue to spread
wonder and excitement through Star Talk, which
is a true passion project for me, is beyond
exciting. And National Geographic Channel is the
perfect home as we continue to explore the
universe.”

Premiering in April 2015, the series will be
produced by National Geographic Studios and will
be taped in front of a studio audience at the
American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden
Planetarium, where Tyson serves as director.

Each week, Tyson and his fellow guests will
explore a variety of cosmic topics, including
space travel, extraterrestrial life, the Big Bang,
the future of Earth and the environment and
breaking news from the universe.

The premiere of ‘Star Talk’ will be accompanied
by the one-hour special ‘Hubble’s Cosmic
Journey’, a celebration of the Hubble Space
Telescope’s 25 years orbiting our planet.
Narrated by Tyson, ‘Hubble’s Cosmic Journey’ is
the story of one of the most remarkable
advances in modern technology, as told by the
people who designed, built, launched, operated
and repaired the legendary observatory.
‘Hubble’s Cosmic Journey’ is produced by Bigger
Bang and along with ‘Star Talk’ will air globally
on National Geographic Channel in 171 countries
and 45 languages this year.
