Unnatural History centers on Henry Griffin (Kevin G. Schmidt), an exceptional teenager with extraordinary skills he learned while living with his anthropologist parents in some of the most exotic places on the planet. When Henry’s parents decide it’s time for him to settle down and lead a normal life, they send him off to Washington D.C. to live with his cousin Jasper (Jordan Gavaris) and uncle Bryan (Martin Donovan), who happens to be the dean of James Smithson High School – the charter school within the National Museum Complex. Henry explores the secrets of Smithson High and the National Museum, and he is soon plunged into a whole new world of mystery and intrigue, where he’ll need all of his skills, as well as the help of his cousin Jasper and new friend Maggie (Italia Ricci).
