The inspiration for Venus Rises came from a fondness for history combined with speculation of how the world would end. No matter how sophisticated we believe we have become as a people, and no matter how many Golden Ages of discovery we achieve, corruption, decadence, and complacency often cause the seeds of unrest to be sown between the haves and the have-nots. I wanted to create a science factual series containing those historical and speculative elements, leading to a conflict between two factions of people on very different sides of the social hierarchy. ~ J. G. Birdsall (Executive Producer)
