In the Name of God and King: The Spanish Empire

Production of a 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 (1475-1598).

“In the Name of God and King: The Spanish Empire” will tell the story of the Spanish Empire, which at its peak encircled the globe. This documentary series will will look past the oft-told tales of Columbus and the conquistadors and explore the epic challenges empire posed to the Spanish and to the peoples it encountered. We will explore in depth the encounter of the New World and the Old, how they dramatically interacted and changed each other. We will look into the lives of the world-class rulers of the time as well as the stories of a number of people from different social backgrounds. The stories of faith, empire and conquest will combine to form the compelling saga of “In the Name of God and King: The Spanish Empire.”
