Apple TV+ has released a first-look image from franklinUpcoming limited series based on book by Stacy Schiff A Great Reformation: Franklin, the Birth of France and America, which sees Michael Douglas as Founding Father Benjamin Franklin for the first time; Take a look here…
The play will trace the thrilling story of one of the greatest gamblers of Benjamin Franklin’s career. At age 70, with no diplomatic training, Franklin persuaded France – an absolute monarchy – to outlive America’s experiment in democracy. By virtue of his fame, charisma and ingenuity, Franklin outwitted British spies, French informers and hostile allies, all while engineering the Franco-American alliance of 1778 and the final peace treaty of l783 with England. The eight-year French mission stands out as Franklin’s most important service to his country, without which America would not have won the Revolution.
