HBO has released a trailer for an upcoming miniseries The Plot Against America, highlighting the obstacles that a Jewish family will go through when an antisemitic and fascist person becomes the newly-elected president of America.
The series stars Winona Ryder, Zoe Kazan and John Turturro.
Based on the novel by Philip Roth, the six-part series imagines an alternate American history told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they watch the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist who becomes president and turns the nation toward fascism.
It will also feature Morgan Spector, Anthony Boyle, Azhy Robertson and newcomer Caleb Malis.
Notably it is written and executive produced by David Simon and Ed Burns, who both collaborated on The Wire.
Update: Tuesday, March 17 at 8.30pm on FOX Showcase.
