In about a week and a half's time, HBO will start airing Parade's End, a five part mini-series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a British aristocrat caught in a love triangle and World War I. Surely, nothing that Sherlock can't handle. Based on a four part book series of the same name by Ford Madox Ford, the mini-series was adapted for the premium cable network, and the BBC, by renowned British playwright Tom Stoppard.
Sorry, Sir Tom Stoppard. Here's a new preview for Parade's End that details the multiple award winning writer's involvement, not to mention the work of the Star Trek Into Darkness villain, Rebecca Hall, Adelaide Clemens and the rest of the wonderful ensemble. Take a look...
Even if the subject matter appears a bit stiff at times (a bit, well, British), Stoppard's writing, the entire cast's performances and Susanna 'Generation Kill' White's sweeping direction have me sold. Parts 1 and 2 will air a week Tuesday - that's February 26 - from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET, with 3 and 4 to follow on Wednesday in the same time-slot and Part 5 closing things out on Thursday from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m, all on HBO. For those that missed the full trailer for Parade's End, it's also worth watching...
Parade's End premieres with back to back installments on Tuesday, February 26 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Directed by Susanna White, the mini-series stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, Adelaide Clemens, Rupert Everett, Miranda Richardson, Anne-Marie Duff, Roger Allam, Janet McTeer, Freddie Fox, Jack Huston and Steven Robertson.
