Military drama The Long Road Home will receive its UK premiere on National Geographic UK on Tuesday November 7th at 9pm, it has been announced.
The Long Road Home explores a real-life fight for survival during the Iraq War, when the 1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood was ferociously ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad — a day that came to be known in military annals as “Black Sunday.” The series cuts between the action on the ground in Iraq and that of the homefront back in Texas, where wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours, expecting the worst.
The eight episode limited series is based on Martha Raddatz’s New York Times best-selling book and was adapted for television by Mikko Alanne. The cast includes Michael Kelly, Jason Ritter, Kate Bosworth, Sarah Wayne Callies, Noel Fisher and Jeremy Sisto. Mike Medavoy, Jason Clark, Mikko Alanne, Benjamin Anderson and Edward McGurn serve as the executive producers. Mikael Salomon and Phil Abraham are the directors.
