Produced by South Carolina-based prodco Litton Entertainment, the show follows host Mo Rocca as he tells the stories behind scientific inventions from around the world.

“The scope and editorial execution of the series make it an excellent fit for a wide range of broadcasters and other platforms worldwide, and we are proud to be partnering with Litton to promote the franchise at MIPTV in Cannes,” said Harriet Armston-Clarke, sales manager at TVF International, in a statement.
