Project details

Americans have faced adversity before - overcoming it is baked into the nation’s DNA.


Over the course of a 3-part miniseries, 'America: Our Defining Hours' draws upon 300+ years of US history, from the Mayflower, the American Civil War to September 11, to tell a relevant, emotional tale of how the US, as a nation, seized moments of crisis to create a better tomorrow.


Combining dramatic live action sequences, premium documentary elements and expert interviews – the series explores the leadership and collaboration that saw our ancestors not only survive but thrive – stories of presidents, generals, explorers, visionaries and ordinary, yet extraordinary Americans.
