THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY

The Crossroads of History small logo

In conjunction with Maker Studios comes The "Crossroads Of History", a scripted comedy series that examines the fascinating and largely unknown moments in history that have shaped our worlds in ways that you would never have imagined. The series will tell the amazingly TRUE stories of Adolph Hitler's 1907 art school admissions interview, John Wilkes Booth's encounter with Abraham Lincoln's bodyguard at a bar on the night the President was assassinated, and Christopher Columbus' landing in the New World, where he and his straggly team, lost and looking for free hand-outs, encounter the locals of the West Indies.
