Madoff Miniseries Premiere Date ABC

ABC's Madoff Miniseries Gets February Sweeps Premiere Date

Here’s some intel you can take to the bank: ABC will air its Bernie Madoff miniseries Madoff on February 3 and 4 at 8/7c, the network announced Thursday.

The two-part event will follow the rise and crash of Madoff, played by Richard Dreyfuss (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), whose $65 billion Ponzi scheme was one of the largest financial scams in United States history.

Per the official logline: “The miniseries explores the complicated family dynamics within the Madoff clan and exposes the motivations and mechanics behind the monumental fraud.” The project, written by Ben Robbins (The First 48) is based on Brian Ross’ book The Madoff Chronicles and is executive-produced by Linda Berman (The Assets) and Joe Pichirallo (The Secret Life of Bees).

As previously reported, Blythe Danner (The Slap) will play Bernie’s wife, Ruth. The cast also include Frank Whaley (Ray Donovan), Erin Cummings (Pan Am), Tom Lipinski (Suits), Peter Scolari (Girls) and Lewis Black (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart).

      How do you know it is boring – did you get to watch it before the rest of us did? Or are you one of those over-reactors to things you’ve not even seen yet?

    It’s all about how Bernie made off with their money…

    Excellent, can’t wait. There’s so much to that story we don’t know and I only hope the writers have a true insight, especially about the sons who worked there but avoided jail. Dreyfuss is a terrific actor and can no doubt pull this off.
