John Adams is an Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning American television mini-series written by Kirk Ellis, based on the book of the same name by David McCullough and produced by HBO Films which chronicles most of President John Adams's adult life and his role in the founding of the United States.

The mini-series aired in the USA on HBO from 16 March to 20 April, 2008. There are seven episodes, or roughly 500 minutes.

John Adams premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Tuesday 7 April 2009, at 23h00. New episodes air weekly at the same time.

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.
