New York, NY, June 16, 2014 - H2 will premiere THE WORLD WARS: EXTENDED EDITION, giving fans an additional 45-minutes of the hit event series over three consecutive nights beginning Sunday, June 22 at 9PM ET/PT, continuing Monday, June 23 at 9PM ET/PT and concluding Tuesday, June 24 at 9PM ET/PT. Throughout the summer, the three-part series will also premiere in more than 160 countries across the globe.

Originally premiering Memorial Day on HISTORY, 13 million viewers tuned into all or part of the three-night event series THE WORLD WARS, which averaged 4.3 million total viewers and 1.7 million in both adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 In Live + 7 viewership.

Now, THE WORLD WARS: EXTENDED EDITION will give fans more dramatic scenes, expert interviews and historical archives that cover key military battles from both WWI and WWII. It also takes a deeper dive into pivotal scenes like the attack on Gallipoli, Kristallnacht, the liberation of Paris and the rescue of Allied troops in Dunkirk. Overall, the extended version takes a more global perspective, examining this 30-year conflict and its impact on America through the eyes of both its allies and enemies.

The event series tells the story of three devastating decades of war told through the eyes of the powerful men who held the fate of humankind in their hands; men like Roosevelt, Hitler, Patton, Mussolini, Churchill, Tojo, DeGaulle and MacArthur. The series examines the two wars as one contiguous timeline starting in 1914 and concluding in 1945 with these unique individuals coming of age in World War I before ultimately making some of the toughest decisions in the history of mankind in World War II.

The stories are told through the original style that HISTORY and Stephen David Entertainment developed on the Emmy(R) Award-winning THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA using state of the art CGI, dramatic scenes and contributors like Senator John McCain, General Colin Powell, Leon Panetta, Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, British Prime Minister John Major and more.
