HBO has released a thirty-six second teaser trailer for miniseries Parade's End, a sweeping World War I tale. 

The five-part HBO-BBC miniseries, which is based on a series of novels by author Ford Madox Ford, stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall in a plot that centers on "a love triangle between a conservative English aristocrat, his mean socialite wife and a young suffragette," according to the IMDb synopsis.

The series will be directed by Susanna White and was penned by screenwriter Tom Stoppard, who also wrote the screenplay for this year's big-screen adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's epic novel Anna Karenina

Stoppard described writing Parade's End earlier this year to the U.K.'s The Telegraph newspaper as "closer to writing a play than anything I’ve ever written for the screen."
