CuriosityStream has launched its original series Bright Now, which the documentary and on-demand streamer said offers a “fresh take on the traditional broadcast news magazine.”

Bright Now covers trending topics, high-tech breakthroughs, global issues, pivotal moments in history and the “fascinating people at the center of it all.”

Designed for on-the-go audiences, the series aims to provide insight and context to understand the stories behind the news.

Episodes include: “Amazon Burning,” about the more than 60,000 fires that have scorched the region; “Modern Stone Age Family,” about taking ancient culinary practices to the modern kitchen; and “Capturing Woodstock,” in which Oscar-winning filmmaker Dale Bell goes behind the scenes of his iconic 1970 documentary Woodstock.

The first seven episodes are available now, with 30 more premiering by the end of the year.

“CuriosityStream is committed to meeting viewers where they are, whether they want to settle down with a binge-worthy full-length series or satisfy their curiosity on a faster pace,”  CuriosityStream president and CEO Clint Stinchcomb said in a statement. “Audience behavior has fundamentally changed but the power of relevant stories has not. Bright Now delivers what plugged in viewers have come to expect from CuriosityStream… but on new terms.”
