It’s Not PBS

It’s as difficult to imagine Paul Giamatti playing John Adams as it is to imagine HBO doing a mini-series on the second president (isn’t this PBS territory?). Nevertheless, the HBO mini-series John Adams begins in March, based on David McCullough’s bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning biography. Produced by Tom Hanks it also stars Laura Linney as Abigail. Last Fall, the NY Times referred to it as “HBO’s most anticipated mini-series.”


Simon and Schuster is issuing a tie-in edition (the above is from S&S’s Summer catalog. The actual cover will be in color). It’s a good opportunity to replace worn-out copies.
