THE GREATEST GENERATION IN COLOR - WW II HD - A 10-PART SERIES ON HISTORY(TM) TO PREMIERE IN 2009

A LOU REDA PRODUCTION

Three Thousand Hours of Restored Color Archival Footage and Hundreds of Pages of Unpublished Diaries & Journals Create Unique Cinematic Experience

Los Angeles, CA, July 9, 2008 � History(TM) has greenlit one of its most ambitious projects to date, WW II HD, a ten part series premiering in 2009, that will offer one of the most visually astonishing World War II experiences ever seen on television. The announcement was made today by Nancy Dubuc, Executive Vice President and General Manager, History.

"This is History at its core," said Dubuc. "We are committed to preserving our heritage and the remarkable digital technology of WW II in HD will go a long way in ensuring that we never forget the sacrifice made by the Greatest Generation."

WWII II HD will draw from over 3,000 hours of archival color footage, unearthed from archives and private collections scattered across the globe, and restored to pristine condition through advanced HD technology. Artfully shot contemporary HD footage will be seamlessly blended in to reveal what has become of the places where men fought and died, while an explosively resonating 5.1 Dolby "soundscape" full of authentic and unique sounds help create an experience that is clearer and more immediate than anything ever before seen on World War II.

The series will follow the experiences of a handful of men as their personal journeys cross-connect with one another throughout the war. Their own words, found in unpublished diaries and journals, will be delivered with emotional impact by some of Hollywood's top talents, helping to recreate the war's events not as detached historical facts, but rather as profound experiences on the level of a great Hollywood epic.

As part of History's newly formed multi-media partnership with the Library of Congress and its collection of nearly 140 million items, History will incorporate original Library of Congress audio recordings from World War II into the series.

Executive Producers for History are David McKillop and Michael Stiller. WW II HD is produced by Lou Reda Productions. Executive Producers for Lou Reda Productions are Lou Reda and Scott Reda.
