100 Year Journey...
"To know where you are, you need to know where you've been." –Anonymous
The foundation is in the process of developing an authentic, historic period drama series following the lives of three generations of von Trapps and Whiteheads. Spanning 100 years (1823–1921) and taking place in multiple countries, it is like a "Downtown Abbey on the Continent". It traverses from a time at the height of the British Empire to the redrawing of the map of Europe and culminates with the fall of both the German and Austro-Hungarian Empires.
The world had never seen an "industrial revolution" before the 1800s; so much of our "modern world" and politics have been deeply affected by this time period, yet we know so little about its progress on the European continent. Through the events that impacted both the von Trapp and Whitehead families, the series' goal is to shed light on how the progression of this age led to our world today. What makes this story so unique is that for a very short period in Europe, the 'old world' and the beginning of the 'new' collaborated.
