Sky Atlantic HD has struck a deal with FremantleMedia Enterprises for the exclusive free and basic UK TV rights for the new landmark factual series, The Untold History of the United States.
Written and narrated by Oliver Stone, the series goes beyond the headlines to explore key moments in US history, looking into the deeper causes and implications; exploring how events from the past still have resonant themes for the present day.
Stone said: “From the outset I’ve looked at this project as a legacy to my children, and a way to understand the times I’ve lived through. I hope it can contribute to a more global insight into our American history.”
Lucy Criddle, Senior Acquisitions Manager, commented: “Oliver Stone is one of the visionary film makers of our generation, and with The Untold History of the United States he has created a social document of staggering breadth and interest and I can’t wait for our customers to hear his insights into the history of America.”
