Hollywood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 4/6/17 – AMC’s The Son premieres Saturday, April 8th at 9/8c. Starring Pierce Brosnan, the series is a multi-generational saga depicting the birth and rise of oil, Texas, and America. It’s based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling epic by Philipp Meyer and is co-written by Meyer.
The ten-episode, one-hour drama traces the story of Eli McCullough’s (Pierce Brosnan) transformation from good-natured innocence to calculated violence, as he loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. The Son deftly explores how Eli’s ruthlessness and quest for power triggers consequences that span generations, as the McCulloughs rise to become one of the richest families reigning in Texas.
