CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies, Upcoming Ken Burns Documentary Series

CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies

CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies is an upcoming documentary series by Ken Burns and Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee on the past, present, and future of cancer. The three-part series is based on Mukherjee’s book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, and will look at the disease from both historical and scientific perspectives. The series will premiere on PBS in spring 2015.

CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective and a biographer’s passion. The series artfully weaves three different films in one: a riveting historical documentary; an engrossing and intimate vérité film; and a scientific and investigative report.
