Executive Producer Sam Mendes brings together an all-star cast for this epic and definitive adaption of William Shakespeare's most celebrated history plays: Richard II, Henry IV Part I, Henry IV Part II and Henry V. Mounted with unsurpassed scope and scale, The Hollow Crown dramatically re-imagines the tetralogy as a limited series, exploring themes of succession, power, corruption and greed in a singular sweeping production.
From executive producer Sam Mendes comes The Hollow Crown, stunning adaptations of four of Shakespeare's most treasured plays featuring all-star casts. In Richard II, King Richard (Ben Whishaw of Skyfall), a vain, self-indulgent man who rules with little regard for his people's welfare, is called upon to settle a dispute between his cousin Henry Bolingbroke and Thomas Mowbray. In an act that will spell doom for his reign, he banishes both men, and sets into motion a chain of events that will change British history forever. The work of William Shakespeare is brought to life by a cast that also includes Patrick Stewart (Star Trek), James Purefoy (The Following), and David Morrissey (The Walking Dead). A Focus World presentation.
