Thirty years ago, you taught me the value of reading and education as a member of PBS’ “The Electric Company.” Now, thirty years later, you’re getting me excited about science, thanks to the Science Channel’s “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.”

Freeman, who hosts and exec produces “Through the Wormhole,” just received a second-season pickup for the show — which gave Discovery’s Science Channel its best launch ever. He’s got a few more projects in the works at Science as well. More details here.
