Description & Features+
Based on the bestselling novels by John Jakes (North and South), this star-studded Revolution-era romp follows the fortunes of a young Frenchman (Andrew Stevens, Dallas) as he immigrates to America and crosses paths with historical heavyweights, including Paul Revere (William Shatner, Star Trek), Benjamin Franklin (Tom Bosley, Happy Days), John Adams (William Daniels, St. Elsewhere), and George Washington (Peter Graves, Mission: Impossible). Filled with adventure and romance, these three miniseries chronicle the saga of the Kent family in early America. In The Bastard, Phillipe Charboneau adopts a new identity as Philip Kent in the colonies. In The Rebels, Kent fights in the War of Independence and strikes up a friendship with a dashing and reckless Virginian (Don Johnson, Miami Vice). The Seekers completes the story as Philip’s sons and grandson forge a life on the western frontier and fight in the War of 1812. Also starring Patricia Neal (Breakfast at Tiffany’s), George Hamilton (Where the Boys Are), Olivia Hussey (Romeo and Juliet), Delta Burke (Designing Women), and Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City). Disc 1 - The Bastard When young Frenchman Phillipe Charboneau learns that he is the illegitimate son of an English lord, he sails across the Channel to claim his inheritance. After facing unexpected hardship, he seeks adventure in colonial America, where he becomes a printer’s apprentice and falls for independent-minded Anne Ware. As the colonies draw closer to war, Philip ends up in the thick of the action. Disc 2 - The Rebels In Virginia, restless gentleman Judson Fletcher joins the army to escape his father and his feelings for his former love. After Anne’s difficult pregnancy, Philip accepts an assignment to retrieve badly needed cannon from Fort Ticonderoga, and Judson accompanies him. The two friends take on different roles in the war, until a joint mission for General Lafayette brings an old rivalry to a head. Disc 3 - The Seekers After clashing with his father, Abraham Kent and his new bride set off for the frontier. Later, the couple’s son, Jarod, begins life on the high seas during the War of 1812—but finds the British less threatening than Lt. Stovall. Seeking refuge and a new start, Jarod and his cousin Amanda depart for the west, but their path is fraught with danger.
