Turner Classic Movies plans to release in 2010 a 10 part documentary called Moguls and Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood.
"Our story will span more than 100 years of inventiveness and entertainment," said Wilkman in a statement.
"From Thomas Edison to Steven Spielberg, from Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford to Sean Penn and Kate Winslet, we'll tell the stories of Moguls and Movie Stars, the lives they've lived, the movies they've made and the impact they've had on lives around the world.
"TCM is known by lovers of great film as a destination for those who cherish the film industry's cinematic legacy; no network is better positioned to tell Hollywood's complete story than Turner Classic Movies. This is an epic project that promises to be a landmark event for TCM." - Digital Facility
