National Geographic has greenlit a new series, The Story Of Us With Morgan Freeman.

From Revelations Entertainment, the creators of The Story Of God With Morgan Freeman, Freeman will take viewers on a global journey to meet with people from all cultures whose lives are shaped in surprising ways by different fundamental forces.

The Story Of Us aims to uncover the forces that keep societies together, and to reveal the common humanity inside each of us.

The six hour-long episodes will each explore a single fundamental force or topic, including love, belief, power, war and peace, rebellion and freedom.

The Story Of God proved to be a hit for Nat Geo. According to the network, Live+3 ratings showed that 3.5 million total viewers tuned in to the miniseries’ premiere last April, garnering a 3.0 household rating and a 1.1 in P25-54. It also earned a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Informational Series or Special.

The Story Of Us With Morgan Freeman will premiere in Fall 2017 on National Geographic. For Revelations, the executive producers are Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary and James Younger. For National Geographic, the executive producer is Betsy Forhan; Kevin Tao Mohs is vice president, production and development; and Tim Pastore is president of original programming and production.
