Saints & Strangers: Vincent Kartheiser, Anna Camp Ride the Mayflower in NatGeo Pilgrim Movie

As you sit down for a nice turkey dinner with your family this Thanksgiving, be sure to remember one thing: You’re having a way better time than the Pilgrims did in 1620.

TVLine has an exclusive first look at NatGeo’s Saints & Strangers, a four-hour TV movie revealing the trials and tribulations of 101 men, women and children who boarded the Mayflower for a one-way trip to the New World.

In the video above, the settlers at Plymouth (including those played by Mad Men‘s Vincent Kartheiser and True Blood‘s Anna Camp) clash with each other and the Native Americans they’re forcing out, leading to a mighty awkward first Thanksgiving. (And not a green bean casserole in sight!)

Saints & Strangers debuts Sunday, Nov. 22, at 9/8c on NatGeo. Press PLAY above for an exclusive sneak peek, then hit the comments with your thoughts!

    Ron Livingston and Natasha McElhone (the one in the 70s hippy hat) are also in the cast. I have to admit, I am not very interested in this one and I would’ve thought National Geographic could do better than Colonialism on Parade. Saints? Really?

    John and Priscilla Alden are my great grandparents eleven times removed and were both passengers on the Mayflower journey. After watching this clip it appears NatGeo has fallen into the Hollywood Monster Greed Machine and once again sensationalized and bastardized this incredible, tumultuous journey. I’d hope I’m wrong but based on all the other inaccurate movie hype generated so far probably not. Sorry Grandfather and Grandmother. I’m sure you’re rolling..

    Really hoping the account is fair and balanced and does not perpetuate the lies that the pilgrims stole the land from the natives. They were cooperating, the natives had just lost huge numbers to disease and they were in tremendous fear of being attacked by the Pequots
