The distributor says the series will feature high-end CGI, in-depth research and dramatic reenactments, featuring a cast of well-known actors as well as experts in history and other areas.

“This series presents an exciting concept,” Ralf Rueckauer, vice president for ZDFE.unscripted, ZDF Enterprises, said in a statement. “Viewers will be taken on a journey into the past, not to see how kings or rulers lived, but to experience the life of a common person. And it will throw up some surprises along the way as we see striking differences and parallels to our modern lives.”
