H2 PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL SERIES "10 THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT" STARRING HENRY ROLLINS

SERIES PREMEIRES SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2 AT 9:00PM ET

New York, NY - October 25, 2013 - H2(R) presents 10 THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT, starring punk rock icon, author and actor, Henry Rollins as he uncovers crazy new twists and tidbits behind the historical tales, figures, and places you only thought you knew. The new series will premiere on Saturday, November 2 at 9:00PM ET on H2.

"To me, the only way to make history talk, for it to really grab you, is to get as close to it as possible", says Henry Rollins, "You need incredible access and a great deal of persistence to get where you want to go. We did it."

Over the course of the series Rollins will encounter wild personalities, national treasures, and provocative details about some of America's most fascinating subjects. Whether he's analyzing centuries-old documents at the National Archives, exploring the inside of a dead gangster's speakeasy, or exploring the most shocking facts surrounding presidential assassins- he's on a mission to discover 10 Things that the casual history fan absolutely needs to know.

In the premiere episode, Rollins has his sights set on the most shocking facts surrounding presidential assassinations. Four American Presidents have lost their lives to some of the most notorious madmen in all of history, but Rollins looks at some strange and wild tales of assassination that most don't know about. Whether it's failed attempts and medical oddities, or brain-busting conspiracies and savage gun battles, Henry has his crosshairs trained on the most shocking facts surrounding presidential assassins.

10 THINGS YOUD DON'T KNOW ABOUT is produced for H2 by Asylum Entertainment. Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch, Stuart Chait and Alex Piper serve as executive producers for Asylum Entertainment. Brian Meere serves as executive producer for H2.
