Co-producer Adam McKay said: "Will (Ferrell) and I have always believed booze brings out truth. Sometimes that truth involves hitting on airport bar janitors or eating cheese fries at 4am.

"But in this case, we hope that truth will shine on our nation’s history."

The series will air in the summer on Comedy Central.
