There will likely be many film and television projects in the near future with Steve Jobs as the subject matter. One in the works is a documentary hosted by the co-hosts of Discovery Channel’s popular MythBusters series, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. The special, iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World, will feature appearances by computer engineers Daniel Kottke and Lee Felsenstein, as well as journalist Tom Brokaw and musicians Stevie Wonder and Pete Wentz.
Arranging this variety of voices to speak about Jobs is understandable, as he helped revolutionize the worlds of technology, broadcasting, entertainment, and music.
Speaking to AOLTV, Adam Savage said of Jobs, “He defined entirely new ways of thinking about our lives in the digital space: productivity, creativity, music, communication, media and art.” The documentary will explore the miraculous effect the innovator had on lives worldwide and it will examine each of the disciplines Jobs changed with his work.
iGenius will air Sunday, Oct. 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery.
