"The addition of this original broadband series not only illustrates our mission to expand the History brand across all multimedia platforms, but emphasizes that at the heart of history is great storytelling," said Executive Vice President and General Manager of History Nancy Dubuc. "Our focus is to ensure the content on History.com is innovative, relevant, and most importantly, fresh, giving viewers the tools to dig deeper into the programs and genres that interest them."
