The PBS three-part mini-series The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses, starting with Henry VI, Part One, will premiere on December 11 at 9 PM
The King is dead and England is in crisis. War rages with the French and divisions within the English court threaten the crown. Young Henry VI (Tom Sturridge from Pirate Radio) causes outrage by marrying Margaret of Anjou, forcing an unwanted truce; the scene is set for Civil War.
The cast includes Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Sally Hawkins (Jane Eyre) and Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda).
Here is a trailer for Henry VI, Part One.
