This is a TV series where every show is a different classic story,
Romeo and Juliet, cinderella, etc, told with randomly chosen from
history audio and video, so maybe the first show is Romeo and
set in 1890s London with hard core punk sound track and the
show is Cinderella set
50,000 years in the past to classical string
quartet music. And in the end every time period ends up having its
matching counterpart and you find out that everyone is related
it's the story of one family line.
Granted, I'd give your series a watch. Do you need a writer for your team?

[from link] Butterfield regarded "whig history" as the antithesis of real history, which glories in the sheer "differentness" of the past and attempts to understand past events and people in the context of their own time, not of ours. [pertinax, Feb 17 2015]

Here's a game that involves one family line across thousands of years. [Vernon, Feb 23 2015]
||Didn't Black Adder do something along these lines? Granted, never seen more than an episode.
||I bring this fishbone as a souvenir of the Cathedral of Chalesm. [-]
||See also Herbert Butterfield.
||Oddly enough I was expecting periodic table roulette,
with the elements instead...
||You had me until the last sentence 
||It's all part of a cosmic unconsciousness.
||So, not a version of Blind Date where one of the
female contestants is unaccountably tetchy, then?
