As part of its 20th-anniversary celebration, Discovery Channel next year will air a multiple-installment primetime presentation entitled Top 20 All-Americans.

The on-air and cross-media platform will endeavor to pick the 20 Americans from the realms of politics, science, athletics, entertainment, business and invention who have had the greatest impact on life in the United States.

Presented in series form, Discovery will produce either 12 or 13 hours culled from the opinions of experts in various disciplines and the public in the form of mail-in ballots provided by MSOs, online voting, telephone calls, text messaging, school submissions and entries at Discovery Channel Stores.
