Year Million - Promo

Year Million is a major new six-part documentary-drama series exploring what it will be like to be human one million years from now. Today’s brightest futurists, scientists, scholars and notable science fiction writers – incuding Ray Kurzweil, Michio Kaku, Peter Diamandis and Brian Greene - guide viewers through the very latest advances in technology, ideas and innovations that are likely to power the evolution of our species. They help explore a potential future for humankind where man has merged with machine and forged an existence living beyond our bodies and the solar system.

The series propels us into an odyssey of unfathomable choices that humans will face, while questioning the kind of lives we’ll live and the people we’ll become a million years from now. For example, will virtual reality become our reality – and if so, what do we risk losing?

Through illustrative, dramatic storytelling, Year Million paints a version of humanity’s fate through the lens of a typical futuristic family, which includes a daughter who is android, and imagines a future when mortality becomes a thing of the past; man merges with machine; intelligence is limitless; and the human species becomes interplanetary. The series predicts how every aspect of technology may affect our lives, for better or worse.

Narrated by Laurence Fishburne
