A behind-the-scenes look at what to expect from the new series,"Pivotal Players."

Following his popular ten-part documentary series, Catholicism, Fr. Robert Barron is in the midst of producing his next big series: Pivotal Players. The multi-part film series will illuminate the lives and show the influence of a handful of saints, artists, mystics and scholars who have shaped the life of the Church and changed the course of civilization. Fr. Barron and his team will be featuring people like St. Irenaeus, St. Augustine, St. Benedict, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Francis of Assisi, Michelangelo, St. Ignatius, St. Catherine of Siena, Bartolomé de Las Casas, G.K. Chesterton, and John Henry Newman. This is the introduction to the new series.
