“Sherlock” and “The Hobbit” star Martin Freeman will team with “Without a Trace” lead Anthony LaPaglia in the upcoming 90-minute BBC telemovie “The Eichmann Show”.
The pair will play TV producer Milton Fruchtman and director Leo Hurwitz respectively. The pair were responsible for putting together one of the first global television events, televising a trial to thirty-seven countries over four months in 1961.
That trial? Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief Nazi architects of the Holocaust. The project is one of several events the network has planned for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
