The Long Road Home comes to National Geographic

Next month National Geographic premieres a new drama series  The Long Road Home.

A bold new scripted drama series that chronicles the events of one of the darkest engagements of the Iraq War – as American forces occupying Baghdad are ambushed on April 4, 2004 – a day that came to be known as “Black Sunday.” Told through the eyes of those on the frontline, this is not only a story of soldiers in combat but also of their families at home, where wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours.

This event series is based on Martha Raddatz’s New York Times best-seller, from EP Mike Medavoy (Black Swan, Zodiac) and is directed by Emmy-winners Phil Abraham (Daredevil, Mad Men, Orange Is the New Black) and Mikael Salomon (Band of Brothers)
Cast includes two-time Emmy-nominated Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Emmy-nominated Jason Ritter (Parenthood, Girls), Kate Bosworth (SS-GB), Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead, Prison Break), Noel Fisher and Jeremy Sisto.

8:30pm Tuesday November 7 on National Geographic.
