PBS Distribution has announced it will release another new episode of its hit bio series American Experience this fall.

American Experience: Tesla will be released Tuesday, November 22nd.  The new episode of the hit series examines the life of genius Nikola Tesla.  Tesla is revered today as one of the great minds of the 20th Century.  What few people know, though is that Tesla died penniless and unknown.  This new episode of American Experience discusses that and much more throughout its hour-long run time.

Tesla originally rose to fame for creating what would eventually become the basis for the world’s major power grids.  But what few people know of Tesla is that he didn’t stop there.  As this episode of American Experience reveals, he had much more that he wanted to address including the wireless transmission of messages and pictures, and utilizing renewable energy sources among so much more.

For all of his ideas, that were obviously ages ahead of his time, Tesla never received the fame nor fortune that he so rightly deserved.  That is all discussed in this new episode of American Experience, from his fallout with Edison to losing out on countless millions due to a deal gone bad.

American Experience: Tesla will be available on Tuesday, November 22.  It will retail for MSRP of $24.99.  Audiences can view a trailer for this episode of American Experience online now here.  It can be pre-ordered online now via PBS’ online store at a reduced price of $19.99.
