North and South

The North and South series, which is being imagined for television with Lionsgate Television, tells the story of two families – the Hazard family, northern factory owners from Pennsylvania, and the Main family, southern plantation owners – that are brought together when characters from each family meet at the US Military Academy at West Point.

North and South is a coproduction between Discovery and Lionsgate Television. Jakes will also serve as an executive producer on the project.
