Scripting of a three-part, three-hour documentary film series chronicling the rise and fall of Spain's global empire from the reign of Isabel and Ferdinand through the reign of Philip II.

"In the Name of God and King: The Spanish Empire" will explore the story of the first truly global superpower as it struggles with the blessings and burdens of incredible wealth and power. It is a story of lofty moral goals and ruthless pragmatism, of personal triumph and communal tragedy. A few of the themes are how the Spanish Empire was driven by faith, how its discoveries transformed Europe and the New World, the twin rising of religion and nationalism, and the impact of all this on the men and women of the time.
