A 10-PART LIMITED SERIES. (3 hours, 59 minutes)

Set in the 1980s and 90s, this story tells of the immense professional and personal struggles of a college dropout, James Cameron, and his unrelenting ambition to break into the film industry, to the dismay of many.

 

It follows the initial shortcomings of young James' first films (The Terminator and Aliens), and how his personal struggles and passions lead him to near-death experiences on the bottom of the ocean — and trying to make the most ambitious (and nearly impossible) film of all-time, Titanic.

All 10 episodes are below. They are also available on your favorite podcast app.
