American Lion Miniseries

TV Series Season
Version

HBO has greenlighted American Lion, a six-hour event miniseries about Andrew Jackson, with Oscar winner Sean Penn set to play the 7th President of the United States in his first major TV role. The mini is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, written by historian Jon Meacham, with Robert V. Remini's biography of Jackson as additional source material. Orphaned at the hands of the British, Andrew Jackson was a self-made man, a western outsider, a violent warrior and a beloved general who became the country's first "People's President." With the fate of the United States uncertain, the willful and mercurial Jackson fought an intractable Congress and special interests to preserve the Union at all costs – leaving a mixed and deeply controversial legacy. Miro and Bernard are writing the script and will executive produce the mini with Penn (Milk, Mystic River) and Jacobson. Meacham serves as a consultant on the miniseries, set to start production next year.
