In a dynamic hyper-stylized way Executive Producer Ridley Scott takes us on a tour of what was, and what will be through the eyes of the visionary authors, illustrators, filmmakers, and scientists who have become the PROPHETS OF SCIENCE FICTION. Using iconic movie clips and cutting-edge animation, each episode explores how one visionary sci-fi figure's spark of imagination changed our reality. Scott and his group of cinematic and scientific experts, including director, Paul Verhoeven, and theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, dissect the genius of sci fi titans: Mary Shelley, George Lucas, Isaac Asimov, Jules Verne, Phillip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells, and Robert Heinlein.

H.G. Wells’ self-penned epitaph underscores a lifetime of grim - yet uncanny - prophecy. With stories like The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The World Set Free, and The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells established himself as a sci-fi writer of almost clairvoyant talent. But these tales of hi-tech adventure hold an ominous warning - beware the dark side of progress. Our greatest innovations could very well become the tools of our own destruction.
