This ambitious four-part miniseries assembles four of Shakespeare’s history plays – Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II, and Henry V – into a single chronological narrative. The original “Game of Thrones” has inspired bold film adaptations with a cast of leading British and Hollywood talent including Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Patrick Stewart, John Hurt, Julie Walters, David Suchet, Michelle Dockery, and David Morrissey. Fridays, September 20-October 11. 9:00 p.m. ET

All the best,
