In Response to PBS Great Performances: "The Hollow Crown":
New York's Channel 13 will be airing a series of 4 Shakespeare plays from 9/20 thru 10/11 this fall. It's described as lavish & large-scale film adaptations of his best-loved history plays: "Richard II", "Henry IV" (parts 1 & 2), and "Henry V" .
Big name Shakespearean actors will be in it: Ben Whishaw, Jeremy Irons, and Tom Hiddleston, with strong casts including Patrick Stewart, David Suchet (Poirot), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), and our newest discovery Maxine Peake (Martha in Silk).
Think you'll watch?
Shakespeare's language isn't easy to grasp, and then you add the British accents! I do think this will be done in the period, as opposed to ones that are re-set in the modern era & costume.
