President Theodore Roosevelt
AMERICAN ICONS--Documentarian Ken Burns four part series on The Roosevelts: An Intimate History begins Sunday evening on PBS.

Here’s why I’m not going to miss a word:

Edward Herrman as FDR once again delivers a pitch-perfect portrayal of FDR.

Meryl Streep is able to capture Eleanor Roosevelt because she is Meryl Streep.

Peter Coyote delivers the series narration with a pro’s pacing.

Paul Giamatti is Vice President Teddy Roosevelt.

Then there’s the writing by Geoffrey C. Ward, who penned the entire 14-hour documentary.

Below is a NPR review:

President Franklin Roosevelt
