Guerra das Currentes makes his TV debut today in Portugal

Starring Michael Shannon, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Nicholas Hoult as visionaries Westinghouse, Edison, and Tesla, War of the Currents tells an incredible story of the dispute over the dominance of electricity in the late 19th century. An episode that would determine the world as we know it today. Only one can light the way and control the future. A historical drama inspired by the real competition that defined the beginnings of the electricity market, not to be missed today as an exclusive preview at TVCine Top, on November 15, Sunday, at 9:30 p.m.

The American multimillionaire George Westinghouse (1846-1914) knows the work of the electromechanical engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) in the development of the dynamos of the Continental Edison Company in Paris. In 1886, he founded the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company – later known as the Westinghouse Electric Company – and offered to finance the Tesla Project. This gave rise to a rivalry with Thomas Edison (1847-1931), who argued that the distribution of electricity should be in direct current and not with the alternating current advocated by Tesla and Westinghouse. The dispute over which electrical system would support the entire modern world is still known today as the War of the Chains.
