A new miniseries featuring Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the two infamous outlaws will be aired on Showtime on Sunday, December 8 and Monday, December 9.
Bonnie & Clyde will revisit the legend of the Texan couple, who made a name for themselves by holding up banks and stores across America during the Great Depression. Bonnie Parker is played by Holliday Grainger of Showtime's, The Borgias, and Emile Hirsch (Savages, Into the Wild) portrays her gun-toting lover, Clyde Barrow.
The supporting cast includes William Hurt (Damages) in the role of Frank Hamer, one of the police officers who finally managed to track down the two bandits in 1934. Holly Hunter, recently seen in Jane Campion's Sundance Channel series, Top of the Lake, will play Bonnie's mother, Emma Parker.
The four-part miniseries was made with support from Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, the producers behind the TV series, Smash and the films, Chicago and Hairspray. John Rice and Joe Batteer (Windtalkers) authored the script, which Brice Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) directs.
Bonnie & Clyde will air simultaneously on three American cable channels: A&E, Lifetime and the History Channel.
