Of the Critically Acclaimed Collaboration with Couric on Gender Revolution
(New York, NY – April 19, 2017) National Geographic announced today the greenlight of a six-part documentary series featuring Katie Couric, produced by Katie Couric Media with National Geographic Studios. Inspired by her own personal journey of making National Geographic’s critically acclaimed, groundbreaking documentary Gender Revolution (2017), the new untitled series will follow Couric as she talks with thought leaders who are shaping the most pivotal, contentious and oftentimes confusing topics across the globe today. The boundary-pushing series will premiere in 2018 on National Geographic in 171 countries and 45 languages.
“We could not be more proud to partner with Katie and her talented production team once again to tell the countless untold stories that help shape and define our nation’s identity,” said Courteney Monroe, CEO, National Geographic Global Networks. “What we accomplished together with Katie on Gender Revolution was tremendous, and we look forward to expanding that work into a series that will explore some of the most important issues that shape our world today.”
“Right now, we’re undergoing massive, transformational change in almost every area of our lives; change that can be dizzying and scary,” said Couric. “While we’re inundated with information virtually every minute, I’m excited to step back, connect the dots and look at the big picture so we can better understand the world we live in and our place in it. And I couldn’t be more excited to have National Geographic as my partner on this journey.”
