Bryan Cranston to Narrate H2's ‘Big History'

10-Hour Series to Premiere Nov. 2



Fresh off his run as Walter White on AMC's Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston has booked his next TV gig -- narrating H2's new series Big History.

Premiering Nov. 2 at 10 p.m., ET on H2, the 10-hour series aims to present a unified theory of history. Each episode begins with one topic and attempts to connect it to various fields of study. The series will run for 16 half-hour episodes with a two-hour finale attempting to link them together.

"I was asked to be the voice of 13.7 billion years of history," said Cranston, "Sure, I've got the time - give or take a billion years. As I read the material, I realized that this new series gives a surprising and unique look at our world. I'm excited to be a part of it." 

Big History is produced in collaboration with Big History Project - a free online course from Bill Gates and Professor David Christian. The partnership couples online courses developed and designed by Christian to reveal connections between different fields of study with the show.
