Great Performances: The Hollow Crown

THE HOLLOW CROWN, a lavish, four-part miniseries, assembles four of Shakespeare’s history plays — "Richard II," "Henry IV, Part I," & "Henry IV, Part II" and "Henry V" — into a single chronological narrative. The original “Game of Thrones” has inspired bold film adaptations with a cast of leading British and Hollywood talent including Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Patrick Stewart, John Hurt, Julie Walters, David Suchet, Michelle Dockery and David Morrissey. This series premieres on THIRTEEN’s GREAT PERFORMANCES beginning Friday, September 20, 2013 at 9 p.m.
