PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON 'THE SON' PERIOD SET EPIC TV SERIES WITH PIERCE BROSNAN, HENRY GARRETT! CHARACTER PHOTOS AND TRAILER

EPIC NEW 'THE SON'
TV SERIES WITH PIERCE BROSNAN
Before I see you again on Monday, after you, hopefully, spend a lovely and warm festive weekend at your homes and after I wish you a very merry Christmas if you are celebrating, I shall leave you this weekend to feast on our premium spotlight on Pierce Brosnan's new period set television series THE SON with gorgeous new character photos presenting the cast of AMC's historical series which is set to launch its ten episodes sometime next year.

FIRST SON OF TEXAS
Marking the return of ex James Bond Pierce Brosnan to the small screens after his legendary 1980's role in Remington Steele, THE SON is a television adaptation of the book by Philipp Meyer in the form of a multi generational epic tale of the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas family.

PIERCE BROSNAN LEADS CAST
Replacing Sam Neill who was originally supposed to lead the series, Pierce Brosnan plays Eli, the charismatic patriarch of the McCullough family. As a child, he was kidnapped and raised among the Comanche Native American tribe and applies the brutal Comanche world view to his business dealings. He was born on the day Texas became an independent Republic, earning the nickname “First Son of Texas” and is a relic of the Wild West, uneasy with the inexorable taming of Texas and the uncertain future of his legacy.

FAMILY AND ENEMIES
 Henry Garrett plays Eli’s son Pete who’s struggling to make his father proud, while Sydney Lucas plays Eli's granddaughter Jeannie, a tomboy unwilling to accept an existence of childbearing and marrying well. Jess Weixler will play Sally, Pete’s tough, no-nonsense wife. A caring mother who is fiercely protective of her kids, she is searching for fulfilment while trying to keep her marriage together. David Wilson Barnes plays Eli's oldest son Phineas who never had a taste for ranch life. Nick Stevenson is Fred Bernhauer, a handsome, powerful businessman interested in the oil prospects of the McCulloughs. Elizabeth Frances will portray Prairie Flower, a member of the Comanche tribe and Eli’s first love. At first, she sees Eli as nothing more than a slave, but once he is fully integrated into the tribe, she is the first to notice there is something more to him. Carlos Bardem plays the patriarch whose family is the last of the wealthy Spanish aristocracy in South Texas. Paola Nunez plays his daughter Maria who gets close to Pete over the course of the series. The opening episode is directed by War and Peace director Tom Harper.

  8. Well, it seems everyone came for some Pierce eye candy today. It really isn't fair how men tend to age much better than women.

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday and didn't stick to eating those pretzels all alone!

    1. Yes, how they often both age better and how they can live without make up unlike most ladies :)
