The first trailer for the new HBO series, “The Plot Against America”, has been released and features Zoe Kazan in one of the lead roles.

The show is based on a novel by Philip Roth that imagines an alternative version of US history. In the book’s world, aviator Charles Lindbergh becomes an anti-Semitic President leading his country towards fascism.

In addition to Zoe Kazan, the show features a stellar cast including Winona Ryder and John Turturro.

The story is told through the point of view of a Jewish working-class family in New Jersey. Kazan plays Elizabeth “Bess” Levin, a mother trying to protect her family against the tide of fascism gripping the nation, and making plans for a possible escape.

The series is co-created by David Simon, who was also the creator of the award-winning series “The Wire”. “The Plot Against America” will premiere on March 16 on HBO. You can watch the full trailer for the show below.
