The SVOD platform CuriosityStream is gearing up for the new original series Hi$tory, which is slated to launch next week.
Hosted by Peter Sagal (NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!), Hi$tory spotlights four defining chapters included in virtually every American schoolbook, with one distinction—these stories follow the money. All four episodes of the series bow on CuriosityStream on Monday, November 18.
The series follows Watergate, the Civil War, the Transcontinental Railroad and the Cold War.
“Hi$tory focuses on events in our past that almost every American knows, but Peter Sagal delightfully tells these stories through a cash-colored lens with a healthy dose of humor,” said Rob Burk, head of content for CuriosityStream. “Hi$tory strikes at the heart of what CuriosityStream aims to accomplish—finding new, insightful and engaging ways to look at the stories that define our world.”
