Later this year, A&E, Lifetime and History will air Bonnie & Clyde, the two-night miniseries event that will simulcast on all three networks. In anticipation of that and in acknowledgement of the 79th anniversary of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's death on May 23, 1934, they're giving us our first looks at the two lead characters in this story. Take a look at Emile Hirsche and Holliday Grainger as the title characters that make up the legendary 1930s couple, who grabbed the nation's attention with their crime spree. Spoiler alert: it didn't end well for them.
The above photo reveals the attractive couple, in full make-up and costume, clutching guns and each other. And here, we see them out in the woods with their car.
Looks like they're having a bit of car trouble there.
The miniseries will tell the story of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker and the notorious Barrow Gang, who swept through the the central part of the U.S. robbing banks and occasionally killing people in the process. Nearly 80 years after Bonnie & Clyde's death, people are still riveted by their story. Written by John Rice and Joe Batteer, Bonnie & Clyde is directed by Bruce Beresford and executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. In addition to Hirsch and Grainger, the cast includes Holly Hunter, William Hurt, Sarah Hyland, Elizabeth Reaser, Lane Garrison, Austin Hebert and Dale Dickey.
Here's another look at the two leads in costume.
