Parade's End

More Parade's End Goodies: HBO Releases New Trailer, Cast Conversations

Premium cable network HBO has released some more goodies for those of us who are eagerly anticipating the American broadcast of Parade’s End, starring Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch alongside Rebecca Hall.

Am I spamming you guys about Parade’s End? I feel like I might be. But, I so want everyone to watch it and get swoony with me and I’ve been swooning in a fairly limited bubble since October so my basic feeling on this topic is hurry up, HBO! The five-part drama premieres on February 26 and will air over three consecutive nights.

However, HBO apparently approves of my at least being quasi-spammy about it, as they keep releasing new things for us all to look at. Click through for a look at a new trailer and a new cast conversations clip where the stars and production team discuss the project.

Parade’s End Finally Comes to America This February on HBO: Watch the First Teaser

Finally! Critically acclaimed BBC series Parade’s End has at long last gotten an American airdate!

The five-part drama is written by English playwright Sir Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Arcadia) and stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch alongside The Town’s Rebecca Hall, with Adelaide Clemens, Miranda Richardson, Rupert Everett, Janet McTeer, Freddie Fox and more along for the ride. The drama aired in the UK last Fall and made it onto several critics’ “Best of 2012” television lists (including mine) at the end of the year.

Based on Ford Madox Ford’s quartet of novels, the series follows the story of English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens (Cumberbatch) and his wife Sylvia (Hall) from the last years of the Edwardian era through the end of the First World War.

Parade’s End will officially screen over three consecutive nights – February 26, 27 and 28 – on premium cable network HBO. Even though this news was just announced at the Winter session of the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO has already released a teaser trailer for the series and it’s lovely. Check it out for yourself after the jump.

Get Your First Look at Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch in Parade’s End

The first trailer for BBC Two’s sumptuous-looking costume drama Parade’s End starring Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and The Town’s Rebecca Hall has been released. Finally. The whole idea of Cumberbatch + period drama + romantic angst is basically my personal kryptonite, so I’ve pretty much been refreshing my Google feeds daily for any information about this upcoming series. And in my obviously quite biased opinion, this looks fantastic. Lush and romantic and full of class issues, all the sorts of things that those of us who love costume drama tend to crave.

The five-part miniseries is written by no less than Sir Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Arcadia) and is based on a series of four novels by Ford Madox Ford. Parade’s End will follow the story of English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens (Cumberbatch) and his wife Sylvia (Hall) from the last years of the Edwardian era through the end of the First World War.

First Look at Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall in “Parade’s End”

For those of you who are feeling a lack of Edwardian drama in your life thanks to the Downton Abbey hiatus, fear not – there’s more on the way! The first official photo from upcoming BBC/HBO drama Parade’s End has been released, featuring Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and The Town’s Rebecca Hall.

The five-part mini-series is written by acclaimed English playwright Sir Tom Stoppard (Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) and based on a series of four novels by Ford Madox Ford. I read some Ford in grad school, but unfortunately all I remember is that it was beautifully written and quite angsty. So I’m already into this, to be honest.
