PBS has FINALLY announced airdates for THE HOLLOW CROWN films, which went out in England at the time of the Olympics. 



“The Hollow Crown: Shakespeare’s History Plays” 


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

“The Hollow Crown – Henry IV, Part I” – September 27

All the best,
