Genius Synopsis

Each season of "Genius" will dramatize the fascinating stories of the world's most brilliant innovators. The first season will be based on Walter Isaacson's critically acclaimed book "Einstein: His Life and Universe," adapted by writer Noah Pink. Through 10 episodes, GENIUS will chart how an imaginative, rebellious patent clerk, who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate, unlocked the mysteries of the atom and the universe. Each episode will explore Einstein's extraordinary scientific achievements, along with his volatile, passionate and complex personal relationships.
