Geography of Bliss is a Rainn Wilson led Docuseries about The Search for Happiness

The Geography of Bliss details Rainn Wilson's search for happiness around the world.

Announced by Peacock yesterday, Rainn Wilson and the Geography of Bliss is a brand-new documentary series hosted by the eponymous actor, whom many fans may remember as Dwight Schrute from The Office. Based on the New York Times bestseller “The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World.” 

The short series will see Rainn Wilson travel all across the world to some of the happiest (and saddest) locations on the planet. In it, we’ll see the actor seek answers to the big belief and spirituality questions, seeking out what it is about a location’s foundations that make it special. More importantly, what makes its people learn to live with and be happy about the state of the world? It’s a promisingly fun series all in search of the answer to that age-old question: “What makes me happy?”


Premiere Date: May 18, 2023
Host: Rainn Wilson
Executive Producers: Rainn Wilson, Dave Sirulnick, Jen Isaacson, Jon Kamen, Evan Rosenfeld, Casey Scharf, and Melissa Wood

Now, many remember actor Rainn Wilson as the beloved geeky, yet oftentimes inapropriate character, Dwight Scrute. Since then, the actor has gone through quite a journey. Frequently posting quite a bit about his own mental health and spirituality journey, Wilson had gone to write the re-finding your own spirituality self-help book Soul Boom. Set to release just a week from now.

Likewise, the actor has been a PR roll lately. When on a most recent trek on a flight, Wilson sat next to an unsuspecting fan watching, The Office for the first time. It was a story which blew up headlines, even hitting the breaking news segments for CNN.
