Root Mini-Series by Alex Haley The series introduced LeVar Burton in the role of Kunta Kinte. A sequel, Roots: The Next Generations, was broadcast in and a second sequel, Roots: The Gift, was produced as a Christmas film which starred Burton and Gossett.
Hatfield & McCoy - A 4 part mini series on the History Channel. Staring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton. The story of two feuding families that led to murder, death and betrayal. And a forbidden love story. I LOVED this mini series!
