HBO’s epic miniseries John Adams, which swept the Emmys yesterday, will screen on the Showcase Channel next month.
Starring Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney, the tale of the second US president won five awards yesterday including Most Outstanding Miniseries, acting awards for both Giamatti and Linney plus a writing prize. Adding its Creative Arts Emmy wins, the Tom Hanks-produced series won thirteen awards, nudging past the epic Angels in America.
Showcase will begin the 7 part miniseries from 8:30pm Tuesday October 14.
Hanks singled out the contribution of director Tom Hooper, who directed every single frame of the series.
