History greenlit the six-part documentary series, Grant.

Grant. Eli Lehrer, executive vice president of Programming for History, remarked, “This documentary will look at the Civil War and Reconstruction through the intriguing lens of Grant and we look forward to bringing Chernow’s fascinating portrait of this president to life.”
