Titled Sons of Liberty, it’s about the movers and shakers of the colonial protest movement and will evidently cover the period from about 1773 to 1776. The executive producer has done some documentary miniseries for
The History Channel, but I assume this will be a dramatic work along the lines of Hatfields & McCoys.
Focusing on the Adamses and other well-known Whigs will mean inevitable comparisons with HBO’s John Adams miniseries, and HBO set the bar very high indeed. We’ll see how SoL measures up.
I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with the subject matter, but as I said back in April, what I’d really love to see is a Southern Campaign miniseries.
