National Geographic Channel will air their latest and most talked about science series, it will air tonight at 9pm and it will be the first to air in Asia. The Philippines will be the first to see the science series “Breakthrough”, it’s a docu about science, technology and how we evolve as we move forward with these new science breakthrough, discoveries and learning.
It’s a series that will open our eyes and give us new hope during the times we are deprived of solutions or answers to the biggest problems that faced the entire human race.
Breakthrough is also an epic docu series that comes with 6 episodes with one hour each and directed by 6 different visionary directors that added some Hollywood style and National Geographic Channel way of documenting and telling real life stories to us.
In the 1st episode that will air tonight with the title “Fighting Pandemic”, I thought it will be the boring episode ever, but when I learned that there are real stories behind it and real people who are working hard to fight the deadliest viruses, the science series Breakthrough really caught my attention to watch, listen, understand and become an advocate of the greatest science discovery and innovation that shared to us via TV, everything will be shown here in the 1st episode of Breakthrough, and it will require you to glue yourself and focus on what's the situation, the problem and the fun part --- the solution to these problems.
Breakthrough is produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Mark Dowley. The series is co-produced by National Geographic Channel and GE

"Modern science and technology are the keys to addressing the challenges the world is facing today,By partnering with GE — as dedicated to science and innovation as we are — and by working with top-tier directors at the helm, Breakthrough will celebrate the curiosity, innovation and exploration of our world, and spotlight the individuals and institutions at the center of these groundbreaking achievements.” -- Courteney Monroe, CEO, National Geographic Channels
“GE’s involvement brings a certain poetic justice to this endeavor, Thomas Edison, GE’s founder, and Alexander Graham Bell, a founding member of the National Geographic Society, are two of our greatest inventors. Their breakthroughs laid the foundation for tremendous innovation and continue to inspire generations of scientists and engineers. That same spirit will, no doubt, be evident in every episode.” Brian Grazer, Breakthrough producer
“We take great pride in presenting Breakthrough to viewers in the Philippines as it is a celebration of the relentless efforts of the scientific community to better our lives and improve our environment, We hope that it helps viewers appreciate how science has shaped our existence and how it will continue to help us evolve into the future.” --- Jude Turcuato, Senior Vice President and General Manager of FOX International Channels Philippines
