    Default Roots remake gets intense first trailer



    February 11 2016


    The all-star remake of the iconic miniseries Roots has an intense first trailer. 



    Above is your first look at History Channel’s eight-hour American slavery drama starring Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Anna Paquin (True Blood), Laurence Fishburne (Black-ish), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) and Grammy winner Tip “T.I.” Harris. Roots updates the ground-breaking 1977 ABC miniseries, based on Alex Haley’s novel, that won nine Emmys and shattered Nielsen ratings records. 

    The network also announced a premiere date: Monday, May 30 at 9 p.m.

    “Nearly 40 years ago I had the privilege to be a part of an epic television event that started an important conversation in America,” said co-executive producer LeVar Burton, who starred in the original miniseries. “I am incredibly proud to be a part of this new retelling and start the dialogue again, at a time when it is needed more than ever.”

    Filling out the cast is Anika Noni Rose, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Matthew Goode, Mekhi Phifer, James Purefoy, Regé-Jean Page and Malachi Kirby.

    This looks really good. The original was historic TV back in the day.

    I never mind when they redo stories based on books.

    Now if they would just do Rich Man Poor Man like this. I tried to watch it a while back and was disappointed at how TV movie cheap it was.

    Yes, you're right. I hope it's awesome. I would love to see Rich Man, Poor Man done again. That was also fantastic.
