DESCRIPTION: (from HBO's press release, March 2011) HBO Miniseries' MILDRED PIERCE, starring Kate Winslet in the title role, brings to life the memorable character introduced in James M. Cain's classic 1941 novel. The five-part drama offers an intimate portrait of a uniquely independent woman who finds herself newly divorced during the Depression years, as she struggles to carve out a new life for herself and her family. The story explores Mildred's unreasonable devotion to her insatiable daughter, Veda, as well as the complex relationships she shares with the indolent men in her life. Debuting PART ONE and PART TWO on SUNDAY, MARCH 27 (9:00-11:05 p.m. ET/PT), the miniseries also stars Guy Pearce, James LeGros, Melissa Leo, Brian F. O'Byrne and Evan Rachel Wood. Mare Winningham, Morgan Turner and Hope Davis co-star. PART THREE debuts SUNDAY, APRIL 3 (9:00-10:15 p.m.); PART FOUR and PART FIVE debut SUNDAY, APRIL 10 (9:00-11:30 p.m.).
