“I have a rendezvous with death.”
Nat Geo explores the heartache, grief and loss that comes with war in the upcoming eight-hour event series, The Long Road Home.
Based on ABC News journalist Martha Raddatz’s best-selling book, the drama stars Michael Kelly, Kate Bosworth, Jason Ritter, Jeremy Sisto and Noel Fisher.
In ET’s exclusive first look at the new trailer, Sisto, Fisher, Ritter, Bosworth and Kelly chillingly recite lines from the famous 1916 Alan Seeger poem, “I Have a Rendezvous With Death.” Spine-tingling vignettes of heartbreaking wartime moments offer insight into the emotional, mental and physical toll one life-changing event can have on a person and their loved ones.
The Long Road Home re-examines a day during the Iraq War when the First Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, Texas, was ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad, on what would become known as “Black Sunday.”
For a glimpse at what to expect later this fall, watch the exclusive trailer above.
The Long Road Home premieres Tuesday, Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Nat Geo.
