Explore The Underknown
Underknown presents a variety of short-doc series that search for the underlying truth of how our world operates and how it came to be. Our shows take you to the frontiers of science, tell the greatest underknown stories from history and make the most complex ideas and theories entertaining and accessible. Underknown takes you beyond the familiar to explore, question and marvel at the magnificent vagaries of life on Earth and the Universe and ponder our best hopes for our planet, our lives, our children and our future.
Audiences are online, on smartphones, on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. And these audiences aren’t using a TV Guide to find the good stuff anymore, they’re getting content suggested by highly sophisticated algorithms. Such new video watch experiences and ways of content discovery require new kinds of storytelling, content formats and production workflows. Underknown shows are tailored to this new world and thrive in it.
What We Do
We use data science and workflow innovation to incubate and produce captivating video storytelling for social media and as a proving ground for TV and film. We currently produce content for half a dozen web series on a daily basis.
Our underknown stories, hypothetical possibilities, extraordinary creatures and amazing facts have been watched for more than 1 billion human minutes (that’s almost 2,000 years.)
