Story of God

Morgan Freeman is sometimes jokingly referred to as God, thanks to his well-known role in the film “Bruce Almighty.” But the renowned actor and narrator is making a more profound connection to spirituality – and he’s taking us along for the journey. “The Story of God” is the new six-part documentary series hosted by Morgan and premiering on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, April 3, at 9/8c.
