HBO Signature Films: Einstein and Eddington
Premiering March 23 on HBO Signature, another intriguing surprise in what’s shaping up to be a banner year for the cable network. With high-profile roles emerging in The Pacific; Al Pacino as Jack Kevorkian (in You Don’t Know Jack, April 24); New Orleans jazz drama Treme from David Simon (The Wire); and Boardwalk Empire this Fall — will there be room for any Best Actor nominees at the Emmys this year who aren’t on HBO?
Einstein and Eddington is a British single drama produced by Company Pictures and the BBC, in association with HBO. It featured David Tennant as British scientist Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington, and Andy Serkis as Albert Einstein. This is the story of Einstein’s theory of general relativity, his relationship with Eddington and the introduction of this theory to the world, against the backdrop of the Great War. (wiki)
