“There's the revolution you know. And the one that's about to begin.” That’s the tagline for Sons of Liberty, the brand-new drama starting on History this week. Based on the historical events leading up to the American Revolution, an all-star cast brings to life the stories of some of American history’s most famous men. While we might think of George Washington as white wig and wooden teeth, Sons of Liberty aims to change that by telling us about a group of young men trying to find purpose in their lives, who end up changing history in their fight for equality.
Sons of Liberty boasts an impressive cast bringing its historical figures to life, with Ben Barnes joined by Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) as Benjamin Franklin, Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) as Joseph Warren, Michael Raymond-James (Once Upon A Time) as Paul Revere, Rafe Spall (One Day and Black Mirror) as John Hancock and Henry Thomas (Betrayal) as John Adams. The score is provided by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer, bringing a cinematic feel to this tale of rebels changing the face of America forever.
If you’re looking for a new historical series to watch following the Vikings series finale, or if you fancy watching a fun and exciting take on American history, Sons of Liberty is worth checking out.
Sons Of Liberty starts on Tuesday 2 June at 10pm on HISTORY.
