Thanksgiving is right around the corner – a holiday which reminds us all to always be thankful and grateful for everything that comes our way. On this holiday, we also recall the historical account of Thanksgiving, when the Pilgrims first set foot on Plymouth and their interaction with the Native Americans. This Thanksgiving, join National Geographic with the two-night movie event of “Saints & Strangers”, portraying the true and untold story behind the first Thanksgiving.
National Geographic and the cast of “Saints & Strangers” celebrated its premiere on November 9, 2015 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California. “Saints & Strangers” has one remarkable, all-star cast including Vincent Kartheiser, Anna Camp, Ron Livingston, Barry Sloane, Michael Jibson, Ray Stevenson, Natascha McElhone, Brian F. O’Byrne, Raoul Trujillo, Tatanka Means, Kalani Queypo, Bianca Mannie, Nahum Hughes, Michael Greyeyes, Del Zamora and Tamer Burjaq.
The National Geographic’s epic two-night movie event of “Saints & Strangers” is set to air on November 22-23 at 9/8c. According to the press release, “Growing up, we learn about the Mayflower and the colonization of America, but we never learn the whole story. The real story is an incredible survival story. Saints & Strangers is the opportunity to tell the world about our country,” said Executive Producer Gina Matthews. “The Native Americans are determined to maintain their way of life just as much as the Pilgrims are determined to start theirs anew. This is one of those stories where once both groups start down a path, history is changed forever,” added Executive Producer Grant Scharbo.”
“Saints & Strangers” is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Little Engine Productions.
