NEW YORK, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- A new talent line-up is set for the new season of "Iconoclasts," a series on the creative process airing in the United States on the Sundance Channel.

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 26, each hourlong show will be set at a studio or a significant location for one of two artists or innovators, who will share insights into their creative process, Sundance said in a release.

The six-part series -- conceived by Grey Goose Entertainment and executive produced by Robert Redford -- will feature Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and surfer Laird Hamilton; dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and California chef Alice Waters; filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and singer-songwriter Fiona Apple; actress Isabella Rossellini and inventor Dean Kamen; musician-songwriter Paul Simon and producer Lorne Michaels; and comedian Dave Chappelle and poet Maya Angelou.

"These individuals have made a significant impact in their respective fields, and when combined, create endless possibilities for great storytelling," Sundance Channel President and Chief Executive Officer Larry Aidem said.
