LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Fox TV network says President Barack Obama will introduce the debut episode of the science series "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey."

The 13-part program is a reboot of astronomer Carl Sagan's groundbreaking 1980 "Cosmos" series. It debuts 9 p.m. EDT Sunday on stations including Fox and National Geographic Channel.

In Obama's taped video message, he invites viewers to embrace the spirit of discovery and imagine limitless possibilities for the future, Fox said Saturday.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is the host of "Cosmos," which also will air on Fox International Channels and National Geographic Channels International.

Last month, a preview of the new "Cosmos" series was screened at the White House as part of a film festival for K-12 students.
