The first season of ‘Genius’, seen in the world by 45 millions of people, was dedicated to Albert Einstein, as we clearly remember, and it is now the time to think of another genius to treat. What about Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Annibali Picasso? (just ‘Picasso’ is fine as well…)
A visionary and an unconventional person, Picasso made over 50.000 works, giving the world his personal idea of the Art and coming across many other important masterminds of the XX century, such as Ernest Hemingway, Coco Chanel, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, Gertrude Stein, Georges Braque, Jean Cocteau.

TV series ‘Genius’ is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, Ken Biller will be the executive producer.
As another important acknowledgement of estimation, Ron Howard will be the director of the next episode of ‘Star Wars’, that will be released on May 25 2018. Hollywood star system were surprised for a large part of the film, the three quarters, has been already shot; as far as it is possible to make of, former directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller discussed with screenplay writer Lawrence Kasdan and the Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy for a different vision of the film and were fired.
Howard, formerly involved in a space film like ‘Apollo 13’, nominated to 9 Oscars, will start shooting immediately and next days will be meeting the actors Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton.
As for credits, it is possible that Howard, Lord and Miller will appear all together as directors or not, the Directors Guild of America will take the decision.
