HBO has announced a Saturday May 29th at 9pm US-EST air time for the much anticipated telemovie “The Special Relationship”.
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 and U.S. President Bill Clinton as the two dynamic leaders become co-stars on the world stage.”
Dennis Quaid and Hope Davis star as Bill and Hilary Clinton. “The Queen” stars Helen McCrory and Mark Bazeley will reprise their roles of British First Lady Cherie Blair and Blair’s political spin doctor Alastair Campbell respectively.
A large batch of stills from the film can be found at Daemon’s TV.
