The Man with Six Heads: The Life and Times of Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord

Consultation with scholars to develop Part One of a two-part television documentary chronicling the life and times of Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord (1754-1832).

The Man With Six Heads tells the highly dramatic story of the fall of the ancien regime of France, the French Revolution, the rise of Napoleon and the emergence of modern Europe through the life and adventures of Charles-Maurice Talleyrand, the foremost diplomat of his time. Talleyrand served six different regimes and participated in every major political event that occurred in France during the turbulent period between 1780-1815. Although hated by many as corrupt and amoral, Talleyrand was a visionary who tried to create a liberal, modern Europe, with France at the center, where trade replaced conquest and peace reigned between nations.
