DESCRIPTION: (from Lifetime's press release, September 2014) Lifetime's miniseries The Red Tent, based on the best-selling novel by Anita Diamant, premieres December 7 and December 8 at 9pm ET/PT. The Red Tent is a sweeping tale that takes place during the times of the Old Testament, told through the eyes of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob. Airing over two nights, the all-star cast includes Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Minnie Driver (Return to Zero, About a Boy), Emmy nominee Morena Baccarin (Homeland), Golden Globe nominee Rebecca Ferguson (The White Queen), Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), Will Tudor (Game of Thrones) and Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment). The miniseries begins with Dinah's (Ferguson) happy childhood spent inside the red tent where the women of her tribe gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. The film recounts the story of Dinah's mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob (Glen). Dinah matures and experiences an intense love that subsequently leads to a devastating loss, and the fate of her family is forever changed. Winger portrays Rebecca, Jacob's mother while Tudor stars as Joseph, Dinah's brother.
