Short Description:

A follow-up to Inventing America: Making a Nation, Inventing America: Making a Government brings our Founding Fathers back to life in a TV talk show filmed before a live audience. This program tells the story behind the Constitutional Convention of 1787 – four momentous months that changed the world. James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, Gouverneur Morris and George Washington discuss the conflicts and compromises that led to creating the world’s most enduring republic. While imagined and presented as a retrospective, the conversation is based on fact, using the Founders’ actual words.

Created by Milton Nieuwsma and filmed by Philip A. Lane, two-time Emmy Award-winners from previous collaborations, the show was recorded at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. The host and moderator is Fred Johnson, associate professor of history at Hope College. The director is John K.V. Tammi, professor emeritus of theatre and founder of Hope College’s acclaimed Summer Repertory Theatre.
