    “Bonnie & Clyde” Premiere Party at NYC’s McKittrick Hotel

    The A+E Network threw a humdinger of a premiere party this week to celebrate its biggest television event of the year: the simulcast miniseries event, “Bonnie & Clyde,” airing on Sunday, December 8 and Monday, December 9, at 9 pm ET/PT.

    In a first for A+E, three of the nework’s cable channels -- Lifetime, A&E and History – will simulcast the four-hour, two-part, made-for-television movie. “Bonnie & Clyde” star Emile Hirsch (the star of “Into The Wild” and “Speed Racer”) and Holliday Grainger (who played Lucrezia Borgia in “The Borgias,” and is currently filming “Cinderella” for director Kenneth Branagh) in the title roles of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, the Depression-era outlaw couple whose criminal exploits have assured them lasting fame for eight decades.

    Academy Award winning director Bruce Beresford and “Bonnie & Clyde” stars Hirsch, Grainger, William Hurt, Lane Garrison and Austin Hebert attended the premiere event, held at The Heath at The McKittrick Hotel (542 West 27th St., New York). The party space was converted into a swinging Depression-era hideaway. Completed in 1939, the tragic McKittrick Hotel was an apropos location. Completed in 1939, it was intended to be New York City's finest and most decadent luxury hotel of its time but six weeks before its planned opening, it was locked and sealed from the public.
