We all know what life is like living on planet Earth, but many of us can admit that we have questioned what life would be like if we were able to live on another planet, especially the fourth planet away from the sun… Mars! The National Geographic Channel continues to bring a lot more excitement to viewers as the channel takes everyone on an epic trip to Mars in the upcoming, new series MARS, which is executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard.

According to the press release, “Slated to premiere on the National Geographic Channel in 171 countries and 44 languages in fall 2016, MARS — which is set both in the future and in the present day — will be a unique hybrid of scripted and unscripted elements. The epic six-part global miniseries event will tell the epic story of the thrilling quest to colonize Mars and the first manned mission in 2032. The series will use dramatic scripted drama and feature film-caliber visual effects, intercut with documentary vérité and interviews with present-day scientists and innovators who are leading the research and development of space technology that will make the 2032 mission possible. The unscripted portions are currently in production.”

On March 15, 2016, the stupendous, prolific and profound director, producer and actor, Ron Howard attended the National Geographic Channel Upfront at the Park Hyatt’s Onyx Room in NYC. As seen in the photo above, Ron Howard was pictured alongside Tim Pastore, president, original programming & production, National Geographic Channel and Courteney Monroe, CEO, National Geographic Global Networks at the event. The remarkable Ron Howard spoke about the thrilling new series MARS and how viewers can look forward to watching a show that will launch us into outer space and help us learn more about a planet that could very much so be the next planet that can sustain life.

Such a spectacular global event series that viewers can look forward to to get more of an inside look at what is currently going on in the Red Planet.
