The Farnsworth Invention
About The Farnsworth Invention
It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries, Philo Farnsworth and David Sarnoff, race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul Sarnoff, or the self-taught boy genius Farnsworth? This witty and fast-paced history lesson into radio, television, the stock market, and what it took to create one of the greatest inventions of our time comes from the pen of Aaron Sorkin, the clever comic writer of "The West Wing," "The Social Network," "The Newsroom," "Steve Jobs," "A Few Good Men," "Moneyball" and more.
