 Prince Siddharth was the son of Shuddhodhan, King of Kapilvastu. One night while sleeping, wife of King Shuddhodhan, queen Mahamaya saw a strange dream in which she saw a six-toothed huge white elephant.

Months later, while travelling to her mom-dad's house, a pregnant queen Mahamaya was passing through the forest of Lumbini. There she stood holding a branch of a tree & gave birth to a boy who was later named Siddharth, & ultimately became Buddha.

The boy, immediately after birth, walked seven tiny steps, & at every step, a lotus flower bloomed.

Later, in due course, Siddharth married Princess Yashodhara, & then after some time, the couple had a son named Rahul.

Shortly after Rahul's birth, while roaming his kingdom, prince Siddharth once saw a very old man, barely able to walk. Next time, he saw a terminally ill patient, & next time saw a funeral procession. 
He started thinking that I can do any number of things in my life as a human & as a king, but if its known that sooner or later I'll grow old, fall ill & die, what is it in all this for me??

This actually is a question dealt in detail in Vedanta that a man can do anything in life, but if he fails to reach the lotus feet of Lord through true devotion (bhakti), his human existence will ultimately be a waste.

Anyways, so disturbed was prince Siddharth with these questions that soon he left his beloved wife yashodhara & his new born son Rahul sleeping, in the dead of the night, & went to forest & stated meditating.

 Then there are a lot many instances in his life, which I think you'll see in the new serial. 
Ultimately he got answers to his questions while meditating under a Bodhi tree. 

And then spent the rest of his life telling about his experiences & what according to him is the best way to enlightenment, to his numerous disciples.
