A Historical, Dramatic, Television Series Adapted From a True Story
1784 – 1901
A ruthless thief, corrupt politics and devastating natural disasters create unsurmountable odds for a determined family forced to preserve a historical legacy.
El Legado, a proposed television series that spans a century and half, reveals a true story of California’s first Spanish land grant; a massive Los Angeles coastal tract. The saga opens with adventurous soldier, Juan Jose Dominguez, who receives the gift for undaunted bravery only to have it stolen upon death by a trusted confidant. Sole heir, Cristobal, after fruitless life threatening attempts, ultimately dies in the process faced by the ruthless and politically powerful thief. Cristobal’s revengeful son, Manuel, pledged to avenge his father’s death craftily outwits and brings down the evil perpetrator in a landmark court battle. El Legado (The Legacy) is a playbook of dark and colored events that unveil a dramatic history of early California and Los Angeles as it transcends from dusty beginnings to modern times with indelible marks of left by bold pioneers. A portion of historic Rancho San Pedro remarkably remains intact eight generations within the same family. El Legado attributes invaluable contributions of Mexican and indigenous natives that without whom California would not have achieved its present greatness.
