THE AMERICAN GUEST
HBO MAX TO AIR BRAZILIAN HISTORICAL SERIES THIS MONTH
In the period set series department, I'm bringing you a trailer and poster for Brazilian historical series THE AMERICAN GUEST which will premiere this Sunday, September 26th on HBO and HBO Max. Aidan Quinn and
Chico Diaz are in the roles of Theodore Roosevelt and Cândido Rondon. Based on a true story, the four episode mini series recounts the expedition of the former U.S. president through the Amazon region, alongside the Brazilian marshal.
|American Guest starts September 26th|
The plot takes place in the early 20th century. After a bitter defeat in the U.S. presidential campaign, Roosevelt sets out in search of his lost youth in the Brazilian Rainforest alongside his long time friend Farrel Nash (David Herman) and his son Kermit (Chris Mason), with the objective of exploring the last uncharted river in the country: the River of Doubt, in Rondonia. On a journey fraught with deadly dangers, the former
president counts on
the support of indigenous expert Marshal Rondon, then responsible for
connecting the most remote regions of the country. On this journey, the
two men from different backgrounds will have to test their physical and
moral limits, as well as learn to deal with their conflicting
personalities in order to survive. Dana Delany also stars.
