Trailer for Cosmos the TV Series

At Comic-Con in San Diego this past weekend Neil deGrasse Tyson introduced the first trailer for the Cosmos, a 13 part miniseries he'll be hosting on Fox next year made in conjunction with National Geographic.

The series is a remake of the immensely popular 1980's series when Carl Sagan was host and which aired on PBS in September 1980 through December that year.

The series has inspired many people including Tyson who met Sagan when he was 17.

This update of the series with Tyson at the helm should make for great viewing when it's finally released next year. And unlike the original series which was aired on PBS and wasn't widely available, the remake will be in prime time on Fox.

Update: The official trailer is now posted where Tyson and Sagan speak, albeit briefly.
