Plot of NTEoH
The plot revolves around a girl from New Orleans named Jess Valenzuela. Until now, she had no idea that her father was a significant figure protecting the treasure. After discovering her family history, she ventures on an adventure with her friends. Taking on this mission, she travels cross-country to learn more about her past and her family. Her clue to this is the historical treasure that her father told her about when she was young. The group of friends takes on this challenge as they go on a road trip to reach the treasure before their rival, Billie Pearce, does.
National Treasure: Edge of History Cast
Even though the viewers will not be seeing the iconic Nicolas Cage of the movie series National Treasure, the cast of this show will certainly not disappoint them.

National Treasure: Edge of History Trailer
The show has released a seventeen-second teaser trailer giving the fans a glimpse into what the epic series will be to them. The trailer features relics and artifacts from the previous National Treasure film. This hints that the show series will be linked back to the movie on many occasions throughout the show series. Likewise, this also means that the story in both the films and shows will be tied closely together. Hence, this is an excellent time to watch the two movies before jumping into the show. The trailer also gives us a good view of our main character Jess.
Alongside the trailer, the show makers also gave the viewers a behind-the-scenes of the show. Plus, a little chat with the stars featured in it. The footage shows us a snippet of a scene from what could be the Mexican-American War of 1846. At the forefront of this battle, they show us a woman who appears to be a female soldier. Speculations are that this soldier might be the ancestor that Jess is interested in knowing about.
We can only say a little about the series from the trailer and the featurette. However, if one finds it interesting, one should watch this show!
