Anthology “Biography” is returning to A&E Networks after five years as a re-imagined global, linear and digital non-fiction franchise. Focusing on meaningful events on personalities and their impact on our culture, “Biography” will begin to roll out on A&E, History and Lifetime domestically and internationally across all platforms beginning this spring.

Biography.com and the Biography social platforms will also re-launch with a new look and feel, and fresh, relevant content to reflect the brand’s up-close-and-personal approach and promise: “the untold, told.” Building on its roots as a trusted source of information, Biography.com will be re-imagined to help audiences rethink their perspectives on notable people and events, focusing on cultural legacy and relevance.

Initial linear projects under the “Biography” brand will include “The Notorious Life of Biggie Smalls,” “The End of America: Putin’s Master Plan,” “Who Killed Tupac,””Gotti & Son” (working title), “David Koresh and the Siege of Waco,” and hours focused on Elizabeth Smart and Mike Tyson.
