Sundance Channel and Grey Goose Entertainment green light ICONOCLASTS season six
Sundance Channel and GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENT® have announced the green light of the sixth season of the award-winning original series ICONOCLASTS. The highly acclaimed profile series will debut this summer with six episodes. Each episode explores the lives of two creative visionaries in an intimate setting and features an unpredictable exchange that reveals their life’s work and the alchemy of their different fields.
“Over the last five seasons, ICONOCLASTS has featured extraordinary leaders and risk-takers from disciplines as varied as film, music, cuisine, science and business,” said Sundance Channel General Manager Sarah Barnett. “The Sundance Channel audience loves to watch these luminaries shed light on their unique experiences and inspirations. Season Six will deliver more of what our audience is craving.”
The upcoming season will feature an unprecedented roster of innovators, celebrating the best in art, cinema, music, cuisine, sports and philanthropy, with each episode pairing talent from entirely unlike worlds. Sundance Channel will air seasons two through five leading up to the premiere of season six.
“We are incredibly proud of the tremendous response to ICONOCLASTS and the opportunity to continue the tradition with this upcoming season,” said Michelle D. Beauchamp, brand director, GREY GOOSE Vodka. “The level of brilliance that shines through in each and every episode is the perfect reflection of the lovers and leaders in life that have helped build the GREY GOOSE brand.”
