Nat Geo took you into the life of Albert Einstein with its first season of “Genius” and now it’s about to spice things up with the story of Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, played by Antonio Banderas, we might we add. And based on the first trailer, this season is definitely full of spice.
portrays the tortured genius (duh) who womanizes his way through the world while creating beautiful works of art. Picasso talks about the importance of “losing yourself completely” to your work, but is also told “you have talent, but no discipline.” Ouch. All of this is set to a rockin’ score which is weirdly complementary to the series.
The second season of National Geographic’s 10-part, Emmy-nominated global event series is led by showrunner Ken Biller and executive produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Ken Biller, Francie Calfo and Gigi Pritzker
“Genius: Picasso” will premiere on April 24 on Nat Geo.
