"Texas Rising" is an event series on History Channel that details the Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers.

During the Texas Revolution, President Jackson avoided direct U.S. involvement, unwilling to risk open war against Mexico as he continued to monitor the political situation. But Jackson was a mentor to and admirer of General Sam Houston and he realized the fate of Texas would profoundly influence the future of the United States.

The Alamo was not the end of the story, it was only the beginning, and this series details what followed in the fight for an independent Texas. In 1836, west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West and the Texas frontier was viewed as hell on earth. With colliding cultures all fighting for stakes to this territory, no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the fierce Mexican General Santa Anna and his forces. General Sam Houston, the rag tag Rangers and the legendary "Yellow Rose of Texas," lead this story of the human will to fight for independence despite nearly insurmountable odds and to claim a piece of history for all eternity.

The cast includes Bill Paxton, Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olivier Martinez, Thomas Jane, Crispin Glover, Rhys Coiro, Jeremy Davies, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Christopher McDonald, Max Thieriot, Chad Michael Murray, Robert Knepper, Jeff Fahey, Rob Morrow and Kris Kristofferson.

"Texas Rising" is co-produced by A+E Studios and ITV Studios America, and produced by Thinkfactory Media for History. The series is directed by Two-time Oscar-nominated director Roland Joffé ("The Killing Fields," "The Mission"). Leslie Greif serves as executive producer for Thinkfactory Media. Dirk Hoogstra, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Julian P. Hobbs serve as executives in charge of production for History.
