America: The Story of Us

Sunday night The History channel is starting a 3 month series chronicalling the history of The United States.   Here is the description:

America The Story of Us is an epic 12-hour television event that tells the extraordinary story of how America was invented. With highly realistic CGI animation, dramatic recreations and thoughtful insights from some of America's most respected artists, business leaders, academics and intellectuals, it is the first television event in nearly 40 years to present a comprehensive telling of America's history. Elaborate, ambitious and cinematic, America The Story of Us will take you into the moments when Americans harnessed technology to advance human progress, from the rigors of linking the continent by transcontinental railroad--the internet of its day--to triumphing over vertical space through the construction of steel structured buildings to putting a man on the moon. It is an intensive look at the people, places and things that have shaped our nation, and the tough and thrilling adventure that is America's 400-year history.

Considering the fact that I watched the HBO series John Adams 1400 times, I will definitely be watching!   Watch the trailer here.

Not sure how I am going to fit in The Story of Us,  Life, and Small Island... my DVR can only focus on one thing at a time...arrrggghhh.
