The show is previewing the hoped for discovery of this phantom (dark matter) in underground experiments and at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland, as well as addressing the discovery of dark matter in astrophysics.

This new show features Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton as narrator, with sound effects from an Academy Award winning team at Skywalker Sound, and guidance from Nobel Laureate George Smoot. The director is Joao Pequenao, head of the Media Lab at CERN. Carey Ann Strelecki, a consultant on "An Inconvenient Truth," was the writer and producer.
