Earlier today we learned that HBO has set a February 26th premiere date for the period miniseries Parade’s End, and now the network has released a teaser trailer for the five-part WWI-era miniseries. Written by Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love),the adaptation of Madox Ford’s novel series stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, and Adelaide Clemens and centers on an English aristocrat trying to adjust to the social upheaval around him. The event actually first aired on BBC Two late last summer, but American audiences will get to experience the miniseries across three consecutive nights starting on February 26th. Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailer, which is plenty intriguing and sufficiently heavy on the Cumberbatch.
In the first Red Nose Day special on American shores (benefitting the charity Comic Relief), celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Anna Kendrick, and even Kermit the Frog all showed up to participate in the live telecast.
