Producer Gigi Pritzker on ‘Genius,’ her first foray into TV
Gigi Pritzker didn’t plunge headlong into the movie business — her original life plan was to run an NGO in Nepal. An accidental journey to film school set her on a path to producing lots of films, including the Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water. But she’d never done television until Genius, on the life of Albert Einstein, demanded to be made as a series. The first season of the National Geographic anthology series is now up for 10 Emmys.
