"The Roosevelts" premieres on PBS

Meryl has lent her voice to the PBS film The Roosevelts, providing the narrations for former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.  The seven part series, the first of which airs tonight, chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor.  Paul Giamatti voices Teddy.

I normally don't report much (or at all) on Meryl's voicework, but as a bit of a history buff, I might actually check this out once it becomes available online.  Apparently is going to be available in its entirety tomorrow online.


  1. Let us know what you think when you have seen it.

    Would be awesome if our girl grabs not only one but two Emmys in the next couple of years.

    1. I watched the first episode last night and it was great. But I love presidential history so I'm a bit biased. Meryl's voiceovers were very brief for the first epidsode, but her accent of course was impeccable. Regardless I think it'll be a great series and I recommend it!

  2. FYI, this is an absolutely fantastic series.
