HBO has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original limited series The Plot Against America starring Winona Ryder (Stranger Things) and John Turturro (The Night Of).

The six-part limited series will debut on Monday, March 16 at 9/8c.

In addition to Ryder and Turturro, the limited series stars Zoe Kazan, Morgan Spector, Anthony Boyle, Azhy Robertson and Caleb Malis.

David Simon and Ed Burns developed the series. They executive produce with Nina K. Noble, Joe Roth, Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, Susan Goldberg and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Roth and Dennis Stratton serve as co-executive producers. Annapurna Pictures and Blown Deadline Productions produce.
