1Number is a primetime-style, multipart series focused on human-centered stories of the biggest global problems and solutions. 1Number’s genesis came from a simple question: “How many incalculable statistics have we heard time and time again that ultimately signify nothing?”

With almost too many answers to that question, we decided to bring these numbers to life. Our global journeys begin by taking a sideways approach to understanding the unusual reasons why a certain number might exist. We then look at the intrepid innovators that are tackling the problem from all these odd angles–finding opportunity in, and solutions to, that 1Number.

Our show is about putting humans and their stories in front of the statistics, through the eyes of the people that make our selected number both real and solvable.
