Streep, Giamatti and Heemann lend voices to ‘The Roosevelts: An Intimate History’

PBS has announced its latest Ken Burns project “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History”. The seven-part, 14-hour documentary will weave together the stories of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, which is the first time their lives have been presented in a single narrative.

PBS has announced its latest Ken Burns project. Titled “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” the seven-part, 14-hour documentary will follow the political family’s story of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt for more than 100 years, beginning with Theodore’s birth in 1858 to Eleanor’s death in 1962.

Oscar-winner Meryl Streep will voice Eleanor Roosevelt via her personal letters and writings. Joining Streep are Paul Giamatti voicing Theodore Roosevelt and Edward Herrmannvoicing Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Ken Burns says of Streep’s work on the documentary:

Ms. Streep is a magician. Here, she completely transformed herself into Eleanor Roosevelt, simply through her voice. It was remarkable to witness.

The cast is rounded out by Patricia Clarkson, Adam Arkin, Keith Carradine, Ed Harris, John Lithgow, Josh Lucas, Amy Madigan, Pamela Reed, Billy Bob Thornton and Eli Wallach.

“The Roosevelts” will premiere in 2014.
