What happens when we die? That is the central question of the premiere episode for “The Story of God with Morgan Freeman” on National Geographic Channel. Hosted and produced by Oscar acting champ Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby,” 2004), the focus of the episode “Beyond Death” (watch a segment above) is that “a Pastor, a Rabbi and an Imam walk into a diner… and have a fun, serious and slightly irreverent conversation about how each of their religions view what happens after we die.” Dish “Story of God” with Hollywood insiders in our notorious forums by clicking here.
The picture editors being submitted for this non-fiction program at the Emmy Awards are David Isser and David LaMattina. Both editors previously worked with Freeman and his team on “Through the Wormhole.” Isser’s career has included “Food: Fact or Fiction,” “Man vs. the Universe,” and “Stand Up to Cancer.” For LaMattina, he has also worked on “Breakthrough,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” and “Harlem Heights.” Both men are seeking their first Emmy nominations on July 14.
Last year’s nominees for Best Picture Editing for a Non-fiction Program were “Citizenfour,” “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” “The Case Against 8,” and winner “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.” Freeman’s Science Channel program “Through the Wormhole” competed at the two Creative Arts Emmy ceremonies for Best Documentary or Non-fiction Series in 2013 and Best Informational Series or Special in 2014.
