AMERICA'S EPIC HOMEFRONT BATTLES ARE STARS IN AMERICAN HEROES CHANNEL'S ALL-NEW SERIES "BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR"

-- American Heroes Channel Launches Networks First-Ever Virtual Reality Experience, CIVIL WAR: LETTER FROM THE TRENCHES as Companion Piece --

It was the war that divided our nation, a brutal and savage feud that changed America forever. Pitting brother against brother, the Civil War was our country's greatest internal struggle, as friends became foes in a conflict that brought a country to its knees then ultimately reunited it. Now, American Heroes Channel (AHC) transports viewers back to that pivotal era in the exclusive new series, BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR. Premiering Wednesday, December 14 at 10/9c, the series chronicles the definitive story of one of the most extraordinary and bloodiest chapters in American history.

"At AHC, our programming is anchored by real stories of conflict, action and heroism, none of which defined our nation more than the Civil War," said Kevin Bennett, executive vice president and general manager, American Heroes Channel. "With a high-end, cinematic experience, BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR is as dramatic and compelling as any Hollywood blockbuster, taking viewers beyond textbooks, and onto the frontlines of the iconic battles that changed our nation forever. The picturesque nature of the content presented an organic opportunity to travel back in time to the Civil War, and we're thrilled to announce AHC's first-ever virtual reality experience CIVIL WAR: LETTER FROM THE TRENCHES will launch as a companion VR piece."

Told from a soldier's point-of-view, BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR uses the war's most significant battles- Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettsyburg, Battle of Nashville and Petersburg - to illuminate both the bigger themes and revel in the smaller, little-known and surprising stories of this brutal, hellish conflict. Epic, emotional, immersive and action-packed, each of the series' six episodes is completely dedicated to historical authenticity, telling the full scope of what happened at these key battles - regardless of outcome.

Viewers will also have the opportunity to travel back in time to the Civil War through AHC's first-ever virtual reality experience, CIVIL WAR: LETTER FROM THE TRENCHES. In the companion piece, viewers are transported back to the 1860's to "experience" what life was like for a young cadet in the Confederate army, trekking through the mud and dodging enemy fire as they journey through the trenches. CIVIL WAR: LETTER FROM THE TRENCHES is brought to life through the Virtual Reality unit at Cream Productions - and Discovery VR, a cross-network digital offering that debuted in August 2015 which currently boasts a dynamic collection of more than 120 short-form videos. It is available on multiple platforms including: DiscoveryVR.com or via the Discovery VR apps for iOS, Android, Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus.

Don't have access to VR technology? Viewers can still enjoy a 360-degree video of the experience on DiscoveryVR.com as well as American Heroes Channel's Facebook page and YouTube channel. Use arrow keys to look left, right, up and down as you journey through the trenches in this epic experience. Online, AHCtv.com will host additional original content for BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR, including exclusive digital clips, photo galleries and a Civil War trivia quiz.

-- BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR Episode Guide --

Battle of Bull Run - premieres Wednesday, December 14 at 10/9c

The Battle of Bull Run: July 1861. In what will be the first real battle of the Civil War, untested and poorly trained Union and Confederate troops clash on the blood soaked banks of the Bull Run River. Thousands will be killed and wounded, and a shocked nation will be plunged into four years of almost unimaginable violence.

Battle of Antietam - premieres Wednesday, December 21 at 10/9c

Battle of Antietam: September 1862. Following a string of victories in Virginia, Confederate military genius General Robert E. Lee brings his Army north in a bold attempt to end the Civil War and win Southern Independence. During what will become the bloodiest day in the nation's history, a Union artillery crew must keep one of the Confederacy's hardest fighting regiments from breaking the Federal line and winning the battle.

Battle of Fredericksburg - premieres Wednesday, December 28 at 10/9c

The Battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 1862: Following the strategic Union win at Antietam, Federal forces clash with a massive Rebel army in the town of Fredericksburg, Virginia. In what will become the largest fight of the Civil War, we follow Union and Rebel troops as they battle on the waters of the Rappahannock in the first opposed river crossing in American military history, in the streets of the town and on the heavily fortified slopes of Marye's Heights.

Battle of Gettysburg - premieres Wednesday, January 4 at 10/9c

The Battle of Gettysburg, July 1863: In one of the most iconic and well-studied battles in American history, an elite band of Yankee Sharpshooters must stop Robert E. Lee's Alabamian shock troops from flanking the Union line. If successful, this victory on the battlefield in Gettysburg could mean a greater victory for the entire Civil War.

Battle of Nashville- premieres Wednesday, January 11 at 10/9c

The Battle of Nashville, December 1864: In a daring attempt to regain the upper hand in the Civil War, Confederate forces try to retake the city of Nashville and sever the supply line that's feeding the Union invasion of the south. As the battle reaches its bloody climax, an untested regiment of African American troops will be given an almost impossible task: drive one of the Confederacy's hardest fighting units from a heavily fortified hilltop position.

Battle of Petersburg - premieres Wednesday, January 18 at 10/9c

The Battle of Petersburg, April 1865: The Union invasion of the South has ground to a halt at the seemingly impregnable ring of trenches built around Petersburg, Virginia. After eight bloody attempts to storm them have failed, two officers from Vermont will lead a daring nighttime raid to crack the Rebel line and end the war. Battle-hardened, Rebel true believers will do whatever they can to stop the attack and keep the dream of a free south alive.

BLOOD AND FURY: AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR is produced for American Heroes Channel by Cream Productions. For Cream Productions, Kate Harrison and David Brady are executive producers and Matt Booi is series producer. For American Heroes Channel, Max Culhane is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of American Heroes Channel, Investigation Discovery, and Destination America.
