‘Genius’ Showrunner: ‘Hopefully’ Next Season Will Feature Female Genius

Nat Geo’s “Genius” has gone 2-for-2 featuring European male geniuses — when will the fairer sex get their fair shot? That is a question that came up Saturday at the show’s Television Critics Association press tour panel.

“While we certainly intend to and hope to tell stories about women, we didn’t restrict ourselves in that way,” showrunner Ken Biller said in response. “We decided, you know, ‘How do we follow Einstein? What is the next big story we can tell?’”

Albert Einstein was the subject “Genius” Season 1, earning an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for actor Geoffrey Rush. This coming run is about Pablo Picasso, played by Antonio Banderas (pictured above).

“Because of what history has written, there are a few iconic geniuses in the world that are really undeniable,” Biller continued, citing his first two “geniuses” — and also Leonardo da Vinci, who sounds like a shoe-in for another year. “While at the center of our show we have these iconic figures, we have taken great pains and taken great pleasure, in fact, in exploring the equally brilliant women that surround [them].’”

Still, we can do better here.

“Hopefully for the next season we’ll find a woman to explore,” Biller concluded.

‘Genius’ Season 2 First Trailer: Antonio Banderas Is One Sexy Pablo Picasso

A colorful first trailer has both young and old Picasso seducing women with one simple pickup line: “I want to paint you.”

The first trailer for “Genius” season two has arrived, and with it our first glimpse of Antonio Banderas as Pablo Picasso. The Spanish actor takes a stab at his country’s—and the world’s—most famous artist in the National Geographic series, created by crackerjack producing team Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. The newly released trailer paints Picasso as passionate, mysterious, and intensely dedicated to his craft. Of course, the most famous painter of the 20th century was also a notorious lothario. The only pickup line he ever needed was: “I want to paint you.”

Banderas sports sweeping grey locks in “Genius: Picasso,” waxing poetic about art and talent with his effortless swagger. Following the format of its first installment, which cast Geoffrey Rush as Albert Einstein, “Genius” also finds a young Picasso (newcomer Alex Rich) being schooled in the art of painting and seducing his first subjects.

“Genius: Picasso” premieres on NatGeo on April 24. Check out the colorful first trailer below.

It clearly wasn’t always easy for Picasso, one of the 20th century’s most influential and celebrated artists, who was told as a young man, “Your technique is all wrong. You have talent but no discipline.” Alex Rich (GLOW)…
