Why wait until Sunday night to go back to the 90s? National Geographic has offered us an early look at their miniseries The '90s: The Last Great Decade, which is set to debut on Sunday night. The above video gives us a look at the first hour (or 42 minutes anyway) of the two-hour premiere of the 3-part miniseries, which will air Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night, beginning this weekend.
Was the '90s the last great decade? That's what National Geographic Channel's upcoming three-part miniseries, The '90s: The Last Great Decade? seeks to explore. The other day, we shared a clip from the miniseries that focused on O.J. Simpson's Ford Bronco highway chase.
On June 17, 1994, football player and actor O.J. Simpson was supposed to turn himself in to the police, following the brutal murder of his ex-wife. Instead, he left a note for his attorneys to read and took off in a white Ford Bronco. A chase ensued, and it was all over the news, capturing the attention of people across the country as they watched it play out live.
Following up on the first look photos of Rob Lowe and Ginnifer Goodwin as John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy for the TV adaptation of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy comes our first look at Will Rothhaar and Michelle Trachtenberg for the film. Rothhaar is set to play former Marine and JFK's eventual assassin Lee harvey Oswald, while Trachtenberg, who can be seen holding a baby in the photo above, will play his wife Marina.
Yesterday, we got our first look at Rob Lowe as President John F. Kennedy for National Geographic's adaptation of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book Killing Kennedy. At that time, we were wondering when we'd get a peek at Once Upon a Time's Ginnifer Goodwin, who was cast to play the role of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. We didn't have to wait long for it. Nat Geo passed that image along to us today, and you can check it out above.
The photo shows Lowe looking downward, showing off Kennedy's very recognizable hairstyle. He's suited up and standing within view of an American Flag. The two-hour docudrama is based on O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book, which follows the final years of Kennedy's life, leading to his assassination by Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar) in November of 1963.
National Geographicís Killing Lincoln just hit digital platforms a few weeks ago, on May 21.

Winter is coming over at HBO with Game of Thrones. Apparently, itís headed for The National Geographic Channel, too. The network announced on Wednesday it is putting together a brand new reality series set in the remote corners of Alaska, where it is very, very cold. Fittingly, the series will be called Life Below Zero.
Even before the TV adaptation of his book Killing Lincoln brought in record numbers at the network, National Geographic had the adaptation for O'Reilly's follow-up book Killing Kennedy on order. Nat Geo appears to be happily staying aboard the O'Reilly train and showing confidence in his work, as they've given a similar treatment to his next book Killing Jesus: A History, which was only just announced last month and is set to hit shelves in September.
There are numerous dramatic takes set to tell the story of Osama bin Laden's demise.

I doubt Iím alone in being unable to believe that itís been ten years since 9/11. Regardless of how time flies, the tenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon is quickly approaching and naturally, TV networks are set to begin airing specials.
