Michael C. Hall to Narrate 'Vietnam in HD' for History Channel

Michael C. Hall is set to narrate a new miniseries, Vietnam in HD about the Vietnam War for the History Channel.

The History Channel exhaustively researched and collected thousands of hours of uncensored war footage for the six-hour miniseries. Much of what they recovered has never been seen before.

The team behind the project then restored and converted the most important footage into high-definition. Much of the footage obtained was from soldiers' personal handheld cameras.

Dexter star Michael C. Hall will narrate the project, and the writings of over a dozen war veterans will be brought to life by figures like Edward Burns, Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, Blair Underwood, Zachary Levi, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Dean Cain, and Dylan McDermott, among others, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Among the soldiers who will be featured are Karl Marlantes, a Marine whose 2010 novel Matterhorn is widely considered to be one of the best Vietnam accounts ever written, and Joe Galloway, a United Press International reporter who was awarded a Bronze Star with V for Valor for rescuing wounded soldiers under fire at Ia Drang.

The project was conceived as a follow up to the History Channel's 2009 Emmy Award-winning miniseries, WWII in HD, which similarly told the story of a war using the first-person accounts of soldiers, reporters and other personnel.

The miniseries will premiere this fall.
