President Barack Obama will introduce the first episode of a new series on the History cable network, which will be broadcast this Sunday night at 9 p.m.

"America The Story of Us," is a 12-part documentary series that takes viewers through more than 400 years of American history, from the Jamestown, Va. settlement through to the present day.

According to a press release from the network, Obama will say that important moments in the nation's history, “remind us that our American story has never been inevitable ... we can remake ourselves – and our nation – to fit our larger dreams.”

The series is the largest programming event ever undertaken by the History channel, and DVDs of the series will be distributed to every school and accredited college in the nation.

Obama's appearance on the History channel will mark the fourth time in less than two months that the president has taken part in a non-news network TV broadcast. In the past eight weeks, Obama has played basketball at the White House with CBS sports analyst Clark Kellogg during the NCAA men's college basketball final, appeared with First Lady Michelle Obama on Fox's ""American Idol.," and filmed an episode of "America's Most Wanted," also on Fox, with host John Walsh (shown here).
