HOLLYWOOD—During the Golden Age of the miniseries—the late 1970s—TV viewers were transported back to the beginnings of America as seen through the eyes of a French-English immigrant in the mesmerizing melodramatic trilogy “The Kent Chronicles,” based on the popular books by John Jakes.
The series featured a star-studded cast depicting Revolutionary War era heroes including William Shatner as Paul Revere, Peter Graves as George Washington, Tom Bosley as Benjamin Franklin and William Daniels as Samuel Adams.
“The Kent Chronicles” has made its North American DVD debut from Acorn Media. The three-disc set, which offers nearly 10 hours of viewing, includes all three miniseries based on the first three of the popular Kent family novels, plus the original two-minute trailer. The DVD set is available for $59.99 at www.AcornOnline.com. (The rest of this article is available only to frontrowfeatureswire.com subscribers.
