Cisneros Media and Playmakers Entertainment are partnering with Jason Silva to create “The Science Of”, a new concept that'll take viewers on a breathtaking journey of experiences to reveal the extraordinary world beyond ordinary life. The renowned futurist invites us to take a deeper look at our surroundings in order to unlock the daily secrets hiding in plain sight and discover the science behind what we see.
One of the great novelists of the 20th Century, Henry Miller, famously said something that perfectly defines this new format: “The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
“The Science Of” (10 x 60’) takes us on a journey to discover everything that happens whilst we breathe. In a 10-episode format, Jason Silva seeks to change our perception of the present by studying the science behind what makes up our daily lives, like food, intelligence, sex, music, and other things that occur in our lives.
Jason will not only be hosting “The Science Of”, he’ll also be associate producer – together with Cisneros Media and PlayMakers – and will have an active role in the entire process of creating and developing the series. His outstanding oratory skills and motivational talent simply obey a curiosity that has been a constant in his career as a researcher, futurist, performance philosopher and tireless explorer of the human mind. Some media have described him as “part Timothy Leary, part Ray Kurzweil, and part Neo from The Matrix”, and this time he’ll be using all of his knowledge and talent to make us feel like astronauts of our own lives.
“The Science Of is an invitation to look beyond the veil of everyday perception, to look beyond the trappings of habit and crack ourselves open. It’s a show about the sheer miraculousness of existence and the ravishing scientific insights that reveal the world to us in new ways. I’m so thrilled to be a part of this project,” said Jason Silva.
“The creative partnership between Cisneros Media, Playmakers and Jason Silva is a true testament to the alchemy surrounding “The Science Of”. We are living through an unprecedented historical time that has pushed us to question the human experience like never before in modern history. Leaving us to be more open, receptive and sensible to all that makes up our existence. “The Science Of” will answer in an intuitive and dynamic way our innermost questions about the science of our lives,” commented Ailing Zubizarreta, VP of Development & Creative Cisneros Media.
“It isn’t often that a project aligns and synchronizes organically with the right time, the right place and the right people. That’s why we’re so excited to be co-creating this wonderful show with Cisneros Media and Jason Silva, who will make the audience feel like astronauts in orbit. The Science Of is the ability to “crack open the matrix” and show us what hides behind the world around us,” claimed Luciano Molina, CEO & Founder Playmakers Entertainment.
In the words of the astronomer and science educator Carl Sagan, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
