Factual streamer CuriosityStream has ordered a 20-part docuseries that explores numerical facts linked with major historical events.
History By The Numbers, from Blue Ant Studios-owned Saloon Media in association with Sky-backed Jupiter Entertainment, will look at the world’s collective global history by revealing surprising numerical stats connected to historical evens.
Episodes explore iconic moments in history through a context of scale, volume and percentages, which producers say will offer “fresh perspectives of how the world adds up today.”
The show will roll out across the US and select territories internationally on CuriosityStream, while in Canada, the series will premiere on Blue Ant’s Smithsonian Channel.
Sales arm Blue Ant International oversees rest of world licensing for the series, outside of the commissioned territories.
“History By The Numbers is loaded with mind-blowing facts and comparisons and uses numbers to give audiences a fresh way to envision world milestones and historical events,” says Julie Chang, EVP of international co-productions a Blue Ant.
