Showtime Hires Oliver Stone For Documentary Series

Never one to just rest on his laurels, director Oliver Stone is planning a 10-part documentary TV series for Showtime in which he'll explore events in US history that he feels were under-reported. Stone says of the show, titled Secret History, "Through this epic 10-hour series, which I feel is the deepest contribution I could ever make in film to my children and the next generation, I can only hope a change in our thinking will result."

The series will go more deeply into "human events" from America's past that helped to shape our country's history. Here's more:

Topics range from President Harry Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan to the origins and reasons for the Cold War with the Soviet Union, to the fierce struggle between war and peace in America's national security complex. Newly discovered facts and accounts from the Kennedy administration, the Vietnam War, and the great changes in America's role in the world since the fall of Communism in the 1980s will be presented.

Stone's drive to make movies seems to be inexhaustible. And as is often the case with him, it's likely that this project will prove controversial. Do you think you'll be curious to check out Stone's Showtime series?

see, my problem is not the controversy but the irony - for starters I hate Oliver Stone because he himself is an ignorant liberal who hates America and likes to brainwash the public into hating America too. the irony is that all the history books that covered those eras of which he speaks were written in the the 70's with a liberal slant; therefore his so-called "Secret History" is secret because of his fellow conspirators. whatever; it doesn't really matter to me since I boycott all his movies, but it does annoy me that he continues to do his part in creating a misinformed, confused American public...

I think it's an interesting concept, but I'm not sure he's the best person to bring it to fruition.
