A riveting adventure of how America was invented, America: The Story of Us focuses on the people, ideas and events that built our nation, covering 400 years of American history in the most extensive and in-depth television series ever produced by History. From the rigors of linking the continent by wagon trails to the transcontinental railway, the engineering of steel-structured buildings, through to landing on the moon, this epic 12-part series is a grand cinematic vision of how this country was built.

Sharing their thoughts on the building of America, and what it means to be an American, are a world-class group of individuals including Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Buzz Aldrin, Colin Powell, Donald Trump, Tom Brokaw, John Legend, Melissa Etheridge, Brian Williams and more.

From executive producer Jane Root of Planet Earth, comes the breathtaking journey through history--unlike any other in the past 40 years--with live-action recreations of key historical events through the use of cutting edge CGI animation, giving viewers an immersive view of history in the making.

"A series like this can reground us.  David Hinckley, New York Daily News
"...always an interesting nugget around the commercial break.  Mark A. Perigard, Boston Herald

Editor's Note
Cited as the single most elaborate and ambitious documentary miniseries ever created under the auspices of the History Channel network, AMERICA: THE STORY OF US offers a sweeping and comprehensive chronicle of the individuals, events and philosophies that shaped the United States. The twelve-part program spans four centuries, from the early 1700s into the volatile first decade of the 21st century, and covers milestones including, the erection of the transcontinental railway, construction of the very first steel skyscrapers, and the 1969 moon landing. The narrative approach involves filtering these seminal occurrences through the eyes of the various citizens who experienced them, such as frontiersmen, slaves, immigrants and inventors. Numerous celebrity participants also turn up to share their thoughts on America itself, and what being an American means - including Buzz Aldrin, Meryl Streep, Melissa Etheridge, Donald Trump and others.
