Texas Rising

From the same team that brought us the multiple Emmy Award-winning and ratings-record breaking HATFIELDS & MCCOYS, TEXAS RISING is a 10-hour event series that details the Texas Revolution and the rise of the Texas Rangers. Texas Rising stars Bill PaxtonBrendan FraserRay LiottaJeffrey Dean MorganOlivier MartinezThomas JaneCrispin GloverRhys CoiroJeremy DaviesCynthia Addai-RobinsonChristopher McDonaldMax ThieriotChad Michael MurrayTrevor DonovanRobert KnepperJeff FaheyRob Morrow and Kris Kristofferson, and is directed by two-time Oscar-nominated director Roland Joffé (The Killing Fields, The Mission).

In 1836, west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West and the Texas frontier was viewed as hell on earth. Crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes—no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna (Martinez). The heroic General Sam Houston (Paxton), the rag tag Rangers and the legendary “Yellow Rose of Texas” lead this story of the human will to win against insurmountable odds. At the end, the Texas flags stood tall and victorious, claiming a piece of history for all eternity.
