Cable network National Geographic has found a rich source of content to mine with its anthology series, Genius.

Season one, which aired last year, focused on Albert Einstein, played by Geoffrey Rush.

Season two, premiering Tuesday, April 24, stars Antonio Banderas as legendary abstract painter, Pablo Picasso.

And season three, just announced Wednesday with a cast still to be announced, will turn the spotlight on writer Mary Shelley, creator of the enduring legend of Frankenstein.

To tease that announcement at its upfront, Nat Geo created the above spot with help from Motion 504 and Defacto Sound.
