The Story of God with Morgan Freeman will take viewers on a trip around the world to explore different cultures and religions on the ultimate quest to uncover the meaning of life, God and all the questions in between.
Actors: Morgan Freeman, Amir Hussain, Jodi Magness
Taking second billing to the Almighty, the actor Morgan Freeman proves a genial, inquisitive host for what is something of a divinely inspired bait-and-switch operation: “The Story of God,” Nat Geo’s globe-trotting six-part series, might better have been called “The Story of Man”—a pan-cultural account of how humans have defined their place in the universe by imagining gods, rationalizing their most primal fears and responding with belief systems and architecture. If you’re looking for a character study of the Creator Himself, you’re out of luck. Or karma. Or grace.
Season 2 opens with Freeman traveling to Devil’s Tower, Wyoming, which is a sacred place for many local Native American tribes. There he meets with Chief Arvol Looking Horse, who is 19th Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe and of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nations.
