The Plot Against America - HBO - (***Spoilers***)

Coming March 16th.

From David Simon comes the next series dealing with alternative history based on the novel by Philip Roth.

Quote:
The original six-part limited series will premiere on March 16. It comes from David Simon and Ed Burns, who previously co-created HBO’s The Wire and Generation Kill. The story “imagines an alternate American history during World War II, told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they endure the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist, who captures the presidency and turns the nation toward fascism.”

The Man in the High Castle: the prequel

I know it isn't, but hard to ignore the slight parallels

Although, that doesn't look like the wire so I'm guessing this might be a little out of his experience zone. Hope it does well though.

Spielberg was interested in doing a biopic on Lindbergh but was told in no uncertain terms by the other studios that if he persued the project he would never work again in Hollywood. His biography by Scott Berg is a brilliant read.

If that's true then fair play to David Simon's and HBO for taking it on as it is a sensitive topic.
