National Geographic Channel is moving forward with a new event series titled "One Strange Rock" from co-producers Darren Aronofsky and Jane Root. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will film in locations all around the world and in outer space over the course of 100 weeks, "using micro- and macro-photography technology and bringing cameras where they’ve never been before."
"'One Strange Rock' explores how intricate, interwoven and fragile life as we know it is on Earth and how rare it may be in the universe. The more we appreciate how awe-inspiring the development of life on this planet has been, the more likely we are to become inspired stewards of the home that sustains it," Aronofsky said in a statement.
Ari Handel and Scott Franklin of Aronofsky’s Protozoa Picture and Nutopia’s Arif Nurmohamed and Peter Lovering will executive produce. The series is currently in pre-production.
