TEXAS RISING (HISTORY)
BROADCAST HISTORY:
5/25/15 - 6/15/15
STATUS:
telefilm/mini-series in the can
DESCRIPTION:
(from History's press release, May 2015) HISTORY's ten-hour television event series TEXAS RISING stars Bill Paxton, Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olivier Martinez, Thomas Jane, Crispin Glover, Rhys Coiro, Jeremy Davies, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Christopher McDonald, Max Thieriot, Chad Michael Murray, Robert Knepper, Jeff Fahey, Rob Morrow, Kris Kristofferson and is directed by Two-time Oscar-nominated director Roland Joffé (THE KILLING FIELDS, THE MISSION). The Alamo was not the end of the story, it was only the beginning, and TEXAS RISING details what followed in the fight for an independent Texas. In 1836, west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West and the Texas frontier was viewed as hell on earth. With colliding cultures all fighting for stakes to this territory, no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the fierce Mexican General Santa Anna and his forces. General Sam Houston, the rag tag Rangers and the legendary "Yellow Rose of Texas," lead this story of the human will to fight for independence despite nearly insurmountable odds and to claim a piece of history for all eternity. Produced by A+E Studios and ITV Studios America in association with Thinkfactory Media.
