"I Am Rebel" is a reality series on National Geographic Channel.

A backyard chemist invents the world's most infamous club drug. A crime scene photographer changes the way police fight crimes. A civil rights activist hijacks a plane, causing sweeping airport security reforms. The first dark-side hacker revolutionizes computer security. These seemingly disparate stories share a common thread: outsiders finding their voices by rebelling against the status quo.

Executive produced by Doug Liman
