The World Wars

NOMINATED FOR 3 PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS, INCLUDING BEST NONFICTION SERIES.

A docu-drama for the History network, the Wars follows the rise and fall of the some of the most recognizable leaders of the 20th century: Hitler, FDR, Churchill, and others.  I was one of two directors tasked with chronicling a monumental tale.  The mini-series shows how the poorly-handled end of World War 1 inspired the the political movements and personalities that led to World War 2.  Hitler, a soldier in trenches of France, considered his country’s surrender a betrayal by German leaders.  World War 2 became a last, great battle to settle the score in Europe.
