BREAKTHROUGH, a unique co-production of National Geographic, GE, Imagine Entertainment and Asylum Entertainment, gives top directors the opportunity to turn their lenses toward the frontiers of science. The series follows researchers working on cutting-edge projects with breakthrough potential: transformative tools that solve pressing problems. The films demystify the scientific process by showing the trial and error behind every discovery and focusing on the humans behind the science, from driven researchers to the people who stand to benefit from their work.


Season One directors: Ron Howard, Paul Giamatti, Angela Bassett, Bret Ratner, Peter Berg, Akiva Goldsman.


Season Two directors: David Lowery, Ana Lily Amirpour, The Malloys, Steven Hoggard, Shane Carruth, Kurt Sayenga, Shalini Kantayya.
