Philadelphia: The Great Experiment explores Philadelphia's unique role as the nation's laboratory for the ideas and ideals that have shaped America. Over thirteen episodes, the series depicts Philadelphia's evolution through four centuries of triumph and failure, with noble ideals of tolerance and freedom often conflicting with realities of racial strife and violence.
