Announcing the collaborative Tv special, Cnn president Jeff Zucker says, "From protests to war, to human rights, the Beatles, innovative technologies, and politics, the 1960s were an extraordinary era of consequential cultural and global change.

The series isn't Hanks' first foray into Tv producing - his credits include From the Earth to the Moon and Band of Brothers.
