Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Sir Richard Branson would seem an unlikely pair, but what they have in common is a passion for addressing global problems and this comes across as they appear next Tuesday on Iconoclasts.
Iconoclasts, hailed as one of the best documentaries on television, will have its Season 4 debut on Tuesday at 7 pm on DIRECTV Channel 999.
Each hour-long episode of the six-part series features two leading innovators from different fields who come together to discuss their passions and creative processes.
The Iconoclasts series pairs two leading creative innovators from different fields including film, sports, architecture, fashion, food, music, and business. Unlike an ordinary interview programme, it captures the essence of these headline-makers through the eyes of the creative visionaries who respect and admire them the most. The Iconoclasts visit each other’s worlds to explore their creative process, their inspirations and their passions. Each pair provides viewers with an inside glimpse into the inspiration and motivation that made them who they are today and offers insight into the real people behind the public personae.
Participants for Season Four are: Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu and entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson; fashion designer Stella McCartney and artist Edward Ruscha; skateboarder Tony Hawk and filmmaker/actor Jon Favreau; political humorist Bill Maher and music industry executive Clive Davis; tennis champion Venus Williams and musician/producer Wyclef Jean; and actress Cameron Diaz and architect Cameron Sinclair.
