Acting Legend, Ed Asner, Attached to Play Benjamin Franklin in Miniseries

I’m very excitedto announce that film and television star, Ed Asner, will play Benjamin Franklin in a miniseries I’m writing on Franklin’s troubled personal life during the American Revolution.  He all but abandoned his common-law wife, Deborah, spending most of his time in London, even failing to sail home to see her when she was on her deathbed; his (illegitimate) son William Franklin betrayed his father’s fierce patriotism becoming a Loyalist during the war.  We’re hoping to set the project up as a cable television series at HBO or Showtime in the next year.
