We travel back in time across the entire sweep of human history on a quest to discover the moments that that truly made us modern. 

Origins embarks on an epic journey to discover the Steve Jobs of the past, witness their process of creation, and then place the products of their genius on the proper pedestal. 

Award-winning feature film directors create the dramatic re-enactments, and leading Visual Artist John Boswell designs and executes the eye-popping montages that whisk us through history. 

Origins is a new kind of time-travel adventure - a search for the profoundly important "New." The surprising connections between each quantum leap also play an important role in our exploration. Each of these next big things have been identified in consultation with the world's leading authors and scholars in their respective fields. 

Origins boldly goes where no franchise has gone before to put the past together in such a way that viewers can never look at their future the same way again.
