DANIELLE STEEL’S - CROSSING'S TV MINI-SERIES
Christopher Plummer (“The Sound of Music”), Jane Seymour (“Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman”), Cheryl Ladd (“Charlie’s Angels,” “Las Vegas”) and Lee Horsley (“Matt Houston,” Django Unchained) star as two lovers brought together by faith, only to be separated by war in “Crossings,” based on Danielle Steel's bestselling epic novel.
Set against the dawn of World War II, the four and a half-hour sweeping mini-series follows Nick Burnham (Horsley), a young industrialist, and Lianne DeVilliers (Ladd), the wife of an esteemed French ambassador. After a chance meeting at President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s White House, they meet soon after on a transatlantic voyage to Europe. Despite each being married, a magnetic attraction immediately draws the two together, igniting an illicit affair. Yet as war breaks out across Europe and Lianne’s husband falls under suspicion as a Nazi collaborator, the pressure on their forbidden romance soon takes its toll--sending them to opposite ends of the globe.
The Aaron Spelling-produced mini-series, directed by Karen Arthur (“Cagney and Lacey”), also features Oscar®-winner* Christopher Plummer (Beginners, The Sound of Music), Golden Globe®-winner Jane Seymour (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” Wedding Crashers) and Emmy®-winner Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier,” “Cheers”).
“Crossings” originally aired across three nights in February 1986.
