Discovery has commissioned a new documentary on the life of Steve Jobs and it will be hosted by the Mythbusters duo Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. The show will be called iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World and is a co-production with NBC.
“Someone once said that to follow the path that others have laid before you is a very reasonable course of action, therefore all progress is made by unreasonable men,” Savage said. “Steve Jobs was an unreasonable man. He didn’t simply give the public what they wanted, he defined entirely new ways of thinking about our lives in the digital space: productivity, creativity, music, communication, media and art. He has touched, directly and indirectly, all of our lives.”
The special will have interviews with many key people including Stevie Wonder, talking about how Steve Jobs' innovation impacted his career. The show will premiere on Sunday October 16 across the Discovery networks in 210 countries and territories.
