MORE ABOUT THE SHOWS:
Set during Hollywood’s notorious Blacklist, FELLOW TRAVELERS examines the relationship between legendary theater artists Arthur Miller and Elia Kazan and their close connection to Marilyn Monroe. Kazan directed several Miller plays, including DEATH OF A SALESMAN, and Tennessee Williams dramas, including A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Miller also wrote the modern classics THE CRUCIBLE and A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE. FELLOW TRAVELERS explores how the politics of the McCarthy era affected their friendship and how their friendship affected their work.
From Peter Morgan, the creator of Netflix’s THE CROWN and the writer of the THE QUEEN, FROST/NIXON revolves around the landmark series of interviews between British journalist David Frost and former President Nixon three years after he resigned. It’s a battle of wits that pits a broadcaster against one of America’s most complex and wily presidents; a riveting story of the collision of politics and the media.
