HISTORY ORDERS 'SONS OF LIBERTY' SWEEPING HISTORICAL MINI SERIES ON THE FOUNDING OF AMERICA WITH BEN BARNES, RAFE SPALL, HENRY THOMAS, RYAN EGGOLD, MARTON CSOKAS, DEAN NORRIS!

SONS OF LIBERTY
NEW HISTORICAL MINI TV SERIES
After SLEEPY HOLLOW and TURN have made American history trendy again as a topic for TV shows, History is venturing into those waters too by ordering six part mini series SONS OF LIBERTY which will deal with the founding of the United States coming from 'A+E Studios' and 'Stephen David Entertainment' (The World Wars). With the production on the historical mini series scheduled to begin next month, the producers have already picked out their cast and the ensemble will be lead by CHRONICLES OF NARNIA's Ben Barnes and British thespian Rafe Spall (from PROMETHEUS, LIFE OF PI)!

THE STORY OF LIBERTY
BEN BARNES AND RAFE SPALL
To be directed by BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Kari Skogland and with legendary Oscar winner Hans Zimmer composing the opening theme, the story of SONS OF LIBERTY will revolve around a defiant and radical group of young men – Sam Adams (Ben Barnes), a natural born leader with charisma and a penchant for mischief, John Adams  (Henry Thomas), a lawyer and the conservative, smart cousin of Sam Adams, Paul Revere (Michael Raymond James), a veteran who wholeheartedly joins forces with Sam Adams, John Hancock (Rafe Spall), the wealthiest man in Boston at the time, and Joseph Warren (Ryan Eggold), a doctor and man of conscience and integrity, – as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation. Beside them, the cast will also include Marton Csokas who will portray the ferocious General Thomas Gage who is sent to handle the unrest in Boston with a military response, Emily Berrington as Margaret Gage and Dean Norris as the brilliant yet mischievous diplomat Benjamin Franklin. From the Boston Tea Party to the Declaration of Independence, SONS OF LIBERTY will tell the rebellious story of America’s fight for freedom!

'TEXAS RISING' HISTORY'S
ANOTHER EPIC SERIES 
As you know this is not the only upcoming historical series on the subject. I've reported earlier that History has also ordered TEXAS RISING 1800's mini series!  The epic saga will describe the 1800s Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers. That one will also have a stellar cast including: Bill Paxton, Brendan Fraser, Tomas Jane, Olivier Martinez, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ray Liotta, Chad Michael Murray and many others!
