Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is Roots: The Next Generations.
Roots: The Next Generations is an American television miniseries, introduced in 1979, continuing, from 1882 to the 1960s, the fictionalized story of the family of Alex Haley and their life in Henning, Lauderdale County, Tennessee, USA. (Henning is about 48 miles north of Memphis, which is on the Mississippi River and in the southwest corner of the state, and which was then the largest city in it.) This sequel to the 1977 miniseries is based on the last seven chapters of Haley's novel entitled Roots: The Saga of an American Family plus additional material by Haley.
Roots: The Next Generations was produced with a budget of $16.6 million, nearly three times as large as that of the original.
