Plot Synopsis

Created and written by Elizabeth Shapiro, THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY is a scripted short-form series that examines the largely unknown moments in history that have shaped the world, exposing little known but historically accurate facts of the story. The series premiere travels to Adolf Hitler's 1907 art school interview, where he gets rejected and takes a very different career path. Subsequent episodes feature stories like how President Lincoln's alcoholic bodyguard, John Parker, chose the wrong night to leave his post at the Ford Theatre. Guest stars include Josh Fadem as Hitler, Brian Baumgartner as John Frederick Parker, Lou Diamond Phillips, Angela Kinsey, Keir O'Donnell, Jack McBrayer, Wayne Knight, Lloyd Ahlquist and Paul Scheer. THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY premiered as part of "Night Class," History's late-night comedy block.
