Aretha Franklin to be Next Subject of NatGeo's 'Genius' Series

A roundup of news Sunday (Feb. 10) from the Television Critics Association winter meeting, where TV networks and streaming services are presenting details on upcoming programs.

GENIUS IS ARETHA

The late singer Aretha Franklin will be the subject of the National Geographic network’s third installment of its Genius series.

The network said on Sunday that its next miniseries will feature the “Queen of Soul,” who died last year. She’s pushing author Mary Shelley back. National Geographic said last year that the Frankenstein author would be its third Genius, but said Sunday Shelley will be used for a later season.
