New scifi documentary from Cameron and AMC.
James Cameron will be teaching us a thing or two about science fiction. This genre of story-telling has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades, and Cameron hopes to tell the story of how that came to pass.
In a six-part documentary, Cameron will highlight questions that sci-fi makes us ask about life, the future, and our motivations for living. He will catalog the film history of his own works like Terminator and Avatar as well as other key examples of the cinematic genre.
Cameron won’t stop at the film iterations. He’s going straight to the source material of the literary works of greats like H.G. Wells and Ray Bradbury.
This series is the next in line of new non-fiction shows from AMC, and set to premiere in 2018.
