[via press release from American Heroes Channel]


(New York, NY ) The newly renamed American Heroes Channel (AHC) announces its Upfront slate for the 2014-15 season with timeless stories in which a challenge appears - be it a situation or a villain - and a hero arises. Training its sights on compelling and uplifting true stories of men and women who have distinguished themselves by their actions, new series and specials on AHC will honor great defenders of our freedom in epic battles from the Revolutionary War to D-Day; provide a rare glimpse into major events that shaped our world from the Space Race to Watergate; and profile trailblazers and unexpected advocates who made a difference from the Wright brothers to real-life Rosie the Riveters.

"American Heroes Channel is the only home on television that captures intimate, first-person perspectives from the real heroes who were on the frontlines of history," said Kevin Bennett, executive vice president and general manager of American Heroes Channel. "We are thrilled to offer a slate of new series and specials for this Upfront season which truly celebrates every day men and women everywhere that choose to be bigger than themselves, stand up for what's right, and in turn, change the course of history."

Anchoring the AHC slate is the documentary special ONE GIANT LEAP (wt), which chronicles how, amidst unheralded violence and turmoil, a besieged generation looked past tragedy and rose to its feet to welcome a new generation of heroes that made them believe in miracles in a time when heroes were needed badly. ONE GIANT LEAP (wt) reviews the struggles, fears and pressures of the 1960s space race that inspired Americans and remarkably united them in a time of turbulence. Interviews with the surviving astronauts, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin, Jr., as well as families and individuals affected, along with stunning high-definition NASA films and never-before-seen home movie collections, transport viewers back in time to discover a fascinating, untold story of a nation's journey to the moon.

Additional American Heroes Channel's 2014/2015 Upfront programming slate includes:


THE RAID (3Q 2014)

THE RAID follows an elite band of soldiers on a mission that reveals how these men put their unique skills, training and equipment to the test of combat. The six-part series explores how celebrated outfits such as the US Rangers or the Navy Seals, the SAS, the USMC or Royal Marine Commandoes, have changed the course of a battle through their strength and courage.


D-DAY TO VICTORY chronicles the final years of the Allied campaign during the Second World War revealing the realities of the trenches. Each episode tells the story of an iconic battle and hones in on the personal experiences of front-line personnel through moving interviews with World War II veterans.


SECRETS OF THE ARSENAL searches the nation's museums and collections for fascinating and undiscovered pieces of history. From the birth of our nation to our most recent conflicts, this new series reveals the hidden gems that every history lover appreciates. Each one-hour episode explores three different stories giving viewers a fast-paced tour of history's greatest secrets.


We've all asked ourselves the same question - "What might have been" had even one small thing in our lives happened differently. The same question can be asked of history... what if destiny had been different? How would all our lives be changed today if even the smallest fact of what really happened had been altered by fate? A DIFFERENT DESTINY connects the dots between the parallel histories of fact and fate.



AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION is on a mission to set the record straight. Hosted by former Naval officer and actor Jamie Kaler (TBS' "My Boys"), this series is a wake-up call about the surprising hidden facts behind the most familiar and beloved stories from our nation's and military's past.



Between 1765 and 1770, the colonists of North America stopped thinking of themselves as British subjects and began thinking of themselves as Americans. But their call for independence would lead to a battle against the greatest military force of the day. In an epic three-part series, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION chronicles the war the changed the course of history and defined the American character.

ONE GIANT LEAP (wt) (2015 TBA)

ONE GIANT LEAP tells the riveting and uplifting story of how a nation in turmoil rose to its feet after a series of violent and horrific events. This all-new special chronicles the tragedies, fears and pressures of the '60s space race that led to a remarkable miracle, uniting and inspiring Americans across the nation.
