National Geographic’s bold step into its premium programming strategy less than a year ago has already yielded astounding results, including 15 Primetime Emmy nominations (the most in its history), five projects premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the launch of a number of acclaimed series and documentaries. At its summer 2017 Television Critics Association (TCA) presentation last week, National Geographic laid out the new and returning programming that will continue this strong momentum.
