Three Nets to Simulcast ‘Bonnie & Clyde’

The two-night miniseries “Bonnie & Clyde” will bow simultaneously on Lifetime, A&E and History, Sunday and Monday at 8 p.m. CT.

The new onscreen incarnation of the real-life Bonnie Parker-Clyde Barrow romantic crime spree legend stars Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch.

While the pair has not yet achieved household name status, TV and film buffs may recognize them from their extensive filmographies, which include Grainger as Lucrezia Borgia on Showtime’s “The Borgias,” and Hirsch in a multi-award winning performance as Christopher “Alexander Super-Tramp” McCandless in 2007’s “Into the Wild.”

Better known cast members include Holly Hunter and William Hurt, who play Bonnie’s mother and retired Texas Ranger Frank Hamer.
