Brilliant, so much better than the other celebrity genealogy shows. 

Your Family Tree magazine 

Renowned cultural critic and Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr presents this major new ten-part series in which prominent Americans trace their ancestry. 

In each episode, Gates features a group of famous people who share an intimate link, although they are not always aware of the fact. As he takes his subjects on a trek through layers of ancestral history, he uncovers secrets and surprises of their family trees and shares life-changing discoveries. The series features cutting-edge DNA analysis to enable the celebrities' family trees to be traced with scientific precision. Featured guests include Kevin Bacon, Harry Connick Jr, Robert Downey Jr, John Legend, Michelle Rodriguez, Kyra Sedgwick, Martha Stewart, Barbara Walters and Rick Warren.
