AMERICA - THE STORY OF US, HISTORY CHANNEL
A landmark, ten-part drama documentary series for The History Channel. Introduced by Barack Obama, it traces the history of America from Jamestown to 1945.
Jenny wrote and directed several episodes and was nominated for four international Emmys and a NAACP drama award for her film about slavery and the run up to the American civil war.
A masterful example of storytelling. The show's eyewitness account of a New Orleans slave auction, where buyers and sellers prod their merchandise like animals, is like a punch in the stomach. Its strong narrative drive is cross-hatched with nimble intellectual linkages that turn history into something warm and palpable. – Miami Herald
