"Cosmos: A Spacetme Odyssey" set off on a voyage for the stars on FOX more than three decades after the debut of "Cosmos," Carl Sagan's stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science. Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy," "American Dad") has teamed up with Sagan's original creative collaborators — writer/producer Ann Druyan and astrophysicist Steven Soter — to conceive a 13-part "docu-series" that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series. Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, "Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey" will blast off on the FOX schedule in 2014.

Produced in conjunction with National Geographic Channel, "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" is the story of how human beings began to comprehend the laws of nature and find our place in space and time. By exploring never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge, the series will take viewers to other worlds and travel across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.

Carl Sagan's original series "Cosmos" was first broadcast in 1980 and remains the most globally successful American public television series of all time. Seen by an estimated 700 million viewers, "Cosmos" has remained popular in all media throughout the world.

"Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" is produced by Cosmos Studios, the Ithaca, New York, based company Druyan co-founded in 2000. Ann Druyan, Seth MacFarlane and Cosmos Studios president Mitchell Cannold executive-produce the series. Allan Butler serves as executive producer for National Geographic Channel.
