This historically-based educational NBC TV series used the backlot extensively. It's not been seen on TV in the U.S. for over a decade, and was released on DVD in July 2007.
It involved a number of highly complex plots involving the lead characters "putting right" mistakes made in the past by historical figures familiar to students across the world. However, due to high production costs, low ratings and a limited amount of "popular" history to draw on, the series only lasted one season of 20 episodes.
Almost every location on the backlot was used at various point in the series.
Pilot: Mediterranean Square, Little Europe, Collapsing Bridge
Ep.1 'Created Equal': Mediterranean Square, Spartacus Sq, Riverboat, Six Points, Tower of London
Ep.2 'Bully & Billy' : Flash Flood, Mexican Street, Denver Street
More coming soon!
