Synopsis

John Adams, David McCullough's Pulitzer Prize-winning book and one of the best-selling American historical biographies of all times, comes to the screen as a seven-part HBO Films mini-series.

John Adams chronicles the life of this remarkable historical figure, a man whose fiercely independent spirit, reverence for the rule of law and commitment to personal liberty profoundly influenced the values on which America was founded.

The mini-series also explores the extraordinary relationship between Adams and Abigail, his wife of 54 years, a partnership regarded as one of the most moving love stories in American history.

The series stars Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney as John and Abigail Adams.

The show has won more Emmy awards - thirteen - than any other mini-series, and four Golden Globe awards.
