The writer and producer behind tonight’s documentary about Nikola Tesla admits that he didn’t even know who the inventor was when he was first contacted about creating a video biography for PBS’ “American Experience” series.

“Tesla was like your garage geek,” Grubin told GeekWire. “He was figuring it out on his own. … He was the Mozart of scientists. His ideas came out fully formed. That is his genius.”
