A new documentary series about the life of Alexander the Great is coming to Netflix in January!

"ALEXANDER: THE MAKING OF A GOD" is set to premiere on January 31, 2024, according to the streaming platform's official announcement.

Much of the filming took place in September 2022 in Morocco. The actors are Mido Hamada, who will play the King Darius, while Buck Braithwaite will play Alexander the Great.

The series will include a total of six episodes. Tony Mitchell, who previously worked on 'The Baxter's' and was also behind 'The Bible', is producing.

According to the synopsis: “Combining expert interviews with gripping reenactments, this docudrama explores the life of Alexander the Great through his conquest of the Persian Empire.”

Conqueror and king of Macedonia, Alexander the Great, was born on July 20 or 21, 356 B.C., in Pella, in the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedonia. During his leadership, from 336 to 323 B.C., he united the Greek city-states and led the Corinthian League.

He also became the king of Persia, Babylon and Asia, creating Macedonian colonies in the region. While considering the conquests of Carthage and Rome, Alexander died of malaria in Babylon on June 13, 323 B.C.

He was born to parents King Philip II of Macedon and Queen Olympia, daughter of King Neoptolemus. The young prince and his sister were raised in Pella’s royal court.

Alexander received his earliest education under the tutelage of his relative, Leonidas of Epirus. Leonidas, who King Phillip had hired to teach Alexander math, horsemanship and archery, struggled to control his rebellious student. His next tutor was Lysimachus, who used role-playing to capture the restless boy’s attention.

The Macedon King was particularly delighted in impersonating the warrior Achilles.
