America The Story of Us premieres tonight on History


President Obama will introduce a new series titled America The Story of Us tonight on History channel. The 12 hour series will premiere tonight at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CST in both high-definition and standard-def, heading off a twelve week run.

“Our American story has never been inevitable,” says president Obama in the introduction. The premiere 1-hour episode called “Rebels” takes us back to Jamestown and Plymouth, where early settlers fought for survival in the new world. It also depicts the rise of the tobacco industry and the “rebels” who fought back against the British who wanted to claim this wealthy new land and its prosperities as their own.

Is 12 hours enough to cover 400 years of American history? The LA Times calls the program an “overly produced CliffsNotes to American history,” and seemingly more influenced by the likes of “24” and “E!” than academic programming. You’ll have to decide for yourself whether or not America The Story of Us gives us enough to chew on, or whether the hard edit will leave us hungry for more details.

America The Story of Us “Rebels” will repeat on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET and on Wednesday, April 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
