NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC GREENLIGHTS THIRD SEASON OF EMMY-NOMINATED SERIES "THE STORY OF GOD WITH MORGAN FREEMAN"

National Geographic Also Signs Exclusive First-Look Agreement Partnership With Revelations Entertainment

(Washington, D.C./Pasadena, Calif. - Jan. 13, 2018) National Geographic announced today the greenlight of a third season of its Emmy-nominated hit series, The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, which has been hailed as "fascinating" and "eye-opening." From executive producers Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary and James Younger of Revelations Entertainment, the series premiered as National Geographic's most-watched show of all time and is one of the most socially engaging shows across the network. In 2017 National Geographic expanded the critically acclaimed franchise by presenting The Story of Us with Morgan Freeman, a new series exploring how humanity is shaped by different fundamental forces that bring us all together.

National Geographic also signed an exclusive first-look partnership deal with Revelations Entertainment with the vision of expanding the hit series franchise by developing even more thought-provoking and insightful nonfiction content.

"We are pleased to expand our partnership with Morgan, Lori, James and the entire Revelations Entertainment team on another season of The Story of God," said Tim Pastore, NGC president of original programming and production. "Our viewers around the world have had an incredible response to the series thus far, and we're excited to see where else this team might take us."

"Like Nat Geo, we pride ourselves on engaging our audience and focusing on content that explores truth and creating social impact," said Revelations CEO McCreary and president Freeman. "The alignment of our shared visions allows for the perfect partnership with this first-look deal and we are excited about our future creative ventures."

The third season of the series will again follow Academy Award-winning actor Freeman on an international journey as he discovers the power of religion and how it touches all of our lives. Freeman will travel to some of the world's holiest sites and speak with religious leaders, scientists, historians and archaeologists to try to shed light on questions about the divine that have puzzled us from the beginning. Each episode will focus on a different topic about the divine to help shed light on the questions that inspired mankind.

In the first two seasons, Freeman traveled to Jerusalem's Wailing Wall, India's Bodhi Tree, Mayan temples in Guatemala, the pyramids of Egypt, New Mexico to observe ancient Navajo rituals and the banks of the Ganges River.

He explored lofty topics like creation, resurrection, the afterlife and the apocalypse, all in an effort to open dialogue about values and ideas, and to reveal the commonalities between different faiths and cultures.

The Story of God with Morgan Freeman will air globally in 2019 on National Geographic Channel in 172 countries in 43 languages, and in Spanish on Nat Geo Mundo.

The Story of God with Morgan Freeman is produced by Revelations Entertainment for National Geographic. For Revelations Entertainment, Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary and James Younger are executive producers. For National Geographic, Kevin Tao Mohs is vice president, production and development; Betsy Forhan is the executive producer; and Tim Pastore is president, original programming and production.
