Meet the Man Behind Discovery & Our Curiosity

Hendricks on Curiosity HomepageThis Sunday, August 7, at 8pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel will debut the first installment of Discovery Communications most ambitious multi-platform project ever: Curiosity. Tackling some of the biggest questions of our time as a part of Discovery’s mission to satisfy curiosity about the world around us, Curiosity was envisioned by our Founder and Chairman, John Hendricks.

A cornerstone of the project, beyond the television series with big questions and big names (Stephen Hawking, Eli Roth, Robin Williams and Maggie Gyllenhaal, to name a few), is Curiosity.com. For the past several weeks, the site has featured three of our online Curiosity Luminaries each week and today’s spotlight is on none other than Hendricks. Check out his profile, watch videos of him tackling questions about TV, education and the genesis of Curiosity, and read his answer to several questions — spanning philanthropy and alternatives to fossil fuels.
