Parade’s End US premiere dates:“Sherlock” star Benedict Cumberbatch stars in “Parade’s End” miniseries for HBO this February. From Edwardian England to the chaos and destruction of the First World War, the early 20th century was a defining era in history, a time of unprecedented change, when old certainties were being torn down.
The long golden afternoons of the pre-war years would be shattered by the most destructive war the world had ever known, and countless lives would be changed forever.
Set against this backdrop of impending catastrophe is the story of English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens, trapped in a marriage to an unfaithful wife, and caught between his commitment to the values of Toryism and his unspoken love for a fearless young suffragette.
Spanning the glittering, shallow world of London high society, the trench-scarred battlefields of France, and the breathtaking English countryside, the sweeping five-part HBO Miniseries presentation Parade’s End debuts Tuesday, Feb. 26 (9:00-11:05 p.m. ET/PT), Wednesday, Feb. 27 (9:00-11:05 p.m.) and Thursday, FEB. 28 (9:00-10:00 p.m.), exclusively on HBO.
