History Announces Global Event Series ‘World Wars’

History and sibling net H2 have announced six-hour global event series “World Wars” from Stephen David Entertainment.

Slated for a debut later this year, “World Wars” will tell the story of three devastating decades of war from the perspective of the unique men who came of age in the trenches and later decided the fate of a world on the brink of disaster. Men including Roosevelt, Hitler, Churchill and Mussolini will be highlighted in the nonfiction program, which was lensed in the U.S. and Europe.

History and H2 will roll out the series Stateside and internationally, with France Television and Germany’s N24 also broadcasting the event series in those markets. A global education campaign focused on high school and college students will also be a part of the “World Wars” event series.

“2014 is the 100 year anniversary of WWI, and for History and H2 this is an incredible honor and privilege to tell one of the greatest stories of all time in a very different way,“ said History and H2 exec veep and g.m. Dirk Hoogstra. “’World Wars’ will have the same quality and cinematic story telling that ‘The Men Who Built America’ and ‘America: The Story of Us’ delivered to viewers both of which served as phenomenal successes for History.”

“World Wars” is exec produced by Russell McCarroll, Paul Cabana, Christian Murphy and Stephen David.
