Magnificent Disaster (An Original TV Series Project)

A titanic and charismatic man… A titanic adventure to build the Panama Canal.

The adventure of the Panama Canal, since its creator’s idea; the political and economic national and international battles to obtain the concession and to decide its location; its incredible presentation to the whole world, with the following collection of money for a project of a magnitude never seen before, which sank the economy of a world power like France at the end of the 19th century; and, finally, the appropriation of the project by the United States of America, and the conclusion of its construction – after 50 years and at an unimaginable cost.

A dream that turned into a nightmare and that was finally a reality for which we have to thank one man, one Count, a controversial and marvelous figure, loved and hated, a visionary and utopic man, an epic hero with lots of charisma that changes the course of history. His name is Ferdinand de Lesseps. Without his visión, there would not be a Panama Canal today.
