DESCRIPTION

Genius is a show that explores the turbulent journey of the physicist who would grow to become the icon: Albert Einstein. Fiercely independent, innately brilliant, eternally curious, Einstein changed the way we view the universe. Consequently, this series will change the way we view Einstein. From his early failures and achievements in the world of academics to his emotionally fraught search for love and human connection, the ten-part event paints a portrait of the real Albert Einstein in all his complexity.
