The Bronx Is Burning (2007)

Oliver Platt as "George Steinbrenner"

Adapted from Joseph Mahler's non-fiction best seller "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bronx Is Burning," this eight-part miniseries chronicles New York's turbulent year of 1977, during which the New York Yankees clinched their first World Series Championship under the ownership of George Steinbrenner. That triumph, however, played out against the melodrama of the Son of Sam murders, a traumatic blackout and a bitter mayoral election.

Frost/Nixon (2008)

Oliver Platt as "Bob Zelnick"

In 1977, three years after the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency, Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) selects British TV personality David Frost (Michael Sheen) to conduct a one-on-one, exclusive interview. Though Nixon believes it will be easy to mislead Frost, and the latter's own team doubts that he can stand up to the former president, what actually unfolds is an unexpectedly candid and revealing interview before the court of public opinion.
