The much anticipated telemovie “The Special Relationship” is scheduled to air tomorrow, Saturday May 29th at 9pm US-EST on HBO. In the lead-up to the feature, the network has released a trailer which can be watched in an embed below.
The Richard Loncraine-directed film is the third effort in “Frost/Nixon” writer Peter Morgan’s ‘Blair trilogy’ following on from 2003 British TV movie “The Deal” and 2006 Oscar-winning feature “The Queen”. Michael Sheen will once again reprise the role of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as he did in the previous two.
‘Relationship’ deals with the “unique and sometimes turbulent political relationship between newly-installed British Prime Minister Tony Blair (Sheen) and U.S. President Bill Clinton (Dennis Quaid) as the two dynamic leaders become co-stars on the world stage.”
