ABOUT SAINTS AND STRANGERS:

National Geographic Channel’s two-night movie event Saints & Strangers, premiering Nov. 22-23 at 9/8c, goes deep inside the familiar historical account of Thanksgiving, revealing the trials and tribulations of the first settlers at Plymouth and their complex relationship with the Native Americans. Saints & Strangers is produced by Sony Pictures Television with Little Engine Productions.

Of those who made the journey on the Mayflower, there were those we know as “saints,” religious separatists who abandoned their prior lives for a single cause — religious freedom. The others, the “strangers,” were motivated by real-world material objectives and adventure as opposed to spiritual ideas. This clash of values between these groups created complex inner struggles as they sought to establish new individual identities and a new colony in America, compounded by a complicated relationship with, and between, the local Native American tribes. It’s a story of survival, perseverance, dedication and commitment — themes that reverberate throughout American society today.

The cast tasked with telling this story for the ages includes the “saints” Vincent Kartheiser (William Bradford), Anna Camp (Dorothy Bradford), Ron Livingston (John Carver), Barry Sloane (Edward Winslow) and Michael Jibson (Myles Standish). The “strangers” are led by Ray Stevenson (Stephen Hopkins); Natascha McElhone (Elizabeth Hopkins) and Brían F. O’Byrne (John Billington). The Native Americans are led by Raoul Trujillo (Massasoit), Tatanka Means (Hobbamock), and Kalani Queypo (Squanto).

A true story of survival, sacrifice, alliances and betrayals, Saints & Strangers shines a light on the desperate and often reckless decisions that went into the founding of one of the first American settlements and the reverberations of those decisions, which would last for centuries to come.
