QUOTES FROM THE CREATORS
QUOTE FROM WRITER/DIRECTOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BRANNON BRAGA:
“THE END IS NYE is a show about relationships – it’s about our relationship with nature and how it can end in utter disaster. It’s also about how science can help this relationship to survive and thrive. Yes, THE END IS NYE is terrifying, but our ultimate goal is to build human trust with a welcome boost of optimism about the future and scientific understanding.”
QUOTE FROM WRITER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/HOST BILL NYE:
“Right now our world is a very scary place, yet full of opportunity to make life better for all of us – for everyone on Earth. Speaking of Earth, the big idea behind The End Is Nye is that for the first time in the history of our planet, we humans can control our destiny. We can see the potential for these overwhelming disasters, and we have the means to avoid them. With science, we can change the world.
ABOUT THE SERIES
THE END IS NYE sends Bill Nye into the most epic global disasters imaginable – both natural and unnatural – then demystifies them using science to show how we can survive, mitigate and even prevent them. Each standalone episode delves into the mystery and terror of a specific threat. Every disaster is full of thrills, but also offers hope and a way forward – a scientific blueprint for surviving whatever comes our way. The series is hosted and produced by Bill Nye, Emmy Award winner and renowned science educator, engineer, author, and inventor. Each episode also features a cameo appearance from longtime science advocate and series EP Seth MacFarlane.
The End is Nye is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio and UCP, divisions of Universal Studio Group, and Fuzzy Door by Seth MacFarlane (The Orville, Ted and Family Guy). MacFarlane and President Erica Huggins serve as executive producers for Fuzzy Door. Brannon Braga (Cosmos: Possible Worlds, The Orville, Star Trek) is showrunner, director and executive producer.
