Watch a rollicking extended trailer for History Channel's 'Sons of Liberty'

The History Channel released a rip-roaring new trailer for their upcoming miniseries, Sons of Liberty, and introduces the titular group of radicals as they initiated a revolution. While the subject matter can be a little heavy, History’s take highlights a more invigorated depiction of the men who took on the Revolutionary War. From a boozy Benjamin Franklin (Dean Norris) to a powder-puffed John Hancock (Rafe Spall), take a look at the trailer, which depicts the founding fathers mission as a rollicking, action-packed act of rebellion.

The three-night miniseries will begin on the History Channel at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 25.

History's 'Sons of Liberty' miniseries casts Dean Norris, Ben Barnes, Henry Thomas

History is moving forward with its ambitious Revolutionary War miniseries and has firmed up a star-filled cast. The cable network has ordered the six-hour Sons of Liberty, which follows “a radical group of young men — Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Joseph Warren — as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.”

The sprawling cast includes many notable names playing famous founders: Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia) is Sam Adams, “a natural born leader with charisma and a penchant for mischief;” Ryan Eggold (The Black List) is Joseph Warren, “a doctor and man of conscience and integrity;” Michael Raymond James (True Blood) is Paul Revere, “a veteran who wholeheartedly joins forces with Sam Adams;” Rafe Spall (Prometheus) is John Hancock, “the wealthiest man in Boston at the time”; and Henry Thomas (E.T. The Extraterrestrial) is John Adams, “a lawyer and the conservative, smart cousin of Sam Adams.” Additionally, Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings) is cast as the ferocious General Thomas Gage, who is sent to handle the unrest in Boston with a military response, Emily Berrington (24: Live Another Day) plays Margaret Gage, and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) will take on “the brilliant yet mischievous diplomat” Benjamin Franklin.
