Several non-fiction series highlight the slate.

The Year That Rocked the World will also premiere on Curiosity. The 5 x 52-minute series produced by Off the Fence takes viewers through the importance of several extraordinary years in recent history. And in the previously announced Evolve, a 6 x 52-minute series from Beach House Pictures, biologist and filmmaker Patrick Aryee explores how humanity looks to solve many fundamental issues by mimicking innovations found in nature.

Curiosity will also premiere Eat Me (Or Try Not To) a DBCommm Media, 6 x 60-minute series about the evolution of some of our most popular foods, and where they’re headed in the future.

Other new Curiosity original films include Going Circular, a 90-minute feature produced by Off the Fence.
