|ED ASNER as FDR
ED ASNER, seven-time Emmy Award winner (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant), stars in the one-man solo drama, FDR, exploring the dynamic life and times of one of America's best-loved presidents. ASNER takes us through FDR's White House years from inauguration to the Great Depression and the trials of World War II. Witness his fireside chats; his personal life with Eleanor; his manipulation of Congress (in order to have a draft); the Pearl Harbor controversy and the benevolent dictatorship he called the presidency from 1933–45, which made him the first man in history to be elected to four terms. ASNER shows us why FDR, scorned by many and admired by most, remains one of history's most dynamic and powerful world leaders.
