Inside Bills Brain Decoding Bill Gates

Netflix is getting into the mind of Bill Gates. The streaming service revealed Tuesday it has set a three-part documentary “Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates” that “explores the mind and motivations of celebrated tech visionary, business leader, and philanthropist Bill Gates” and is directed by Academy Award winner Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth,” “He Named Me Malala”).

Here’s more of the official description, courtesy of Netflix:

After stepping down as CEO of Microsoft, Gates began what is undeniably one of the greatest professional second acts in modern history when he shifted his time and considerable intellect toward solving some of the world’s most persistent problems. The series, in-depth and unfiltered in its depiction of a man’s life journey, both his triumphs and setbacks, offers unprecedented access to Gates as he pursues unique solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems with the same level of optimism, curiosity, and fervor that inspired his original vision for Microsoft. Interweaving these endeavors with personal moments, Inside Bill’s Brain draws on interviews with Bill and Melinda Gates in addition to their friends, family, and partners in philanthropy and business, creating an innovative and revealing portrait of a man who, after changing the world, might just change the way others see it.

“Inside Bill’s Brain” is created, directed and executive produced by Guggenheim. Co-executive producers are Beth Osisek and Steven Leckart. Shannon Dill, Jonathan Silberberg and Nicole Stott are executive producers.

“Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates” will launch Sept. 20 on Netflix.
