Discovery Channel to air Spielberg’s series ’Why We Hate’ in MENA

Executive produced by Alex Gibney and Steven Spielberg Why We Hate series will be available in the MENA region on October 13, 2019, at 10:40 pm on Discovery Channel, OSN channel 500.

Directed by Geeta Gandbhir and Sam Pollard (Emmy winners for When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts), the series makes us feel one of humanity’s most primal emotions – hate.

The Chief Brand Officer of Discovery and Factual, Nancy Daniels, commented, “Discovery is tremendously proud to delve into this critical subject with legendary filmmakers Alex Gibney and Steven Spielberg and the teams they have assembled. The hard science gives us the knowledge we need, the storytelling provides the hope.”

On the other hand, Gibney and Spielberg, declared, “This is not a series that just documents something that’s happening; it’s an inquiry – an attempt to understand why we hate, through the science, and through an understanding of our common humanity. Hate is in our DNA. If we understand why we act the way we do, we can change the way we act. That is what we are uniquely capable of as human beings.”

Based on historical investigations and research in psychology, biology, and neuroscience, Why We Hate touches the evolutionary basis of hatred and its powerful influence on individuals and societies throughout human history.

The science behind our behavior is an important tool to help us understand what drives conflict, allowing people to have real, tough conversations about these problems and behaviors.

The series follows individuals seeking to quell the violent conflict and correct misperceptions, hears from former terrorists and architects of genocide, and allows viewers to consider lessons from some of the most brutal and enduring examples of hate throughout the world.
