Science Uprising is the brainchild of cinematographer David Arabia and Discovery Institute Senior Fellows John West and Jonathan Witt; and for Season 2, Evolution News Editor David Klinghoffer has joined the team as well. The original season was created by a network of young professionals in the TV industry who have worked on productions for the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic Wild, Animal Planet, Fox News, and similar media outlets.
