LOS ANGELES, May 22 (UPI) -- The miniseries "Bonnie & Clyde," starring Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the American crime duo, is to be simulcast on History, Lifetime and A&E.

Directed by Oscar nominee Bruce Beresford and executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the film co-stars Holly Hunter, William Hurt, Sarah Hyland, Elizabeth Reaser, Lane Garrison, Austin Hebert and Dale Dickey. It will air over two nights later this year.

The networks released new photos of Hirsch and Grainger as their infamous characters Wednesday ahead of the 79th anniversary of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's deaths May 23, 1934.

Louisiana police shot Parker and Barrow to death in an ambush after they robbed banks, stores and gas stations across the United States, killing about a dozen people.

Hirsch's film credits include "Alpha Dog," "Into the Wild" and "Milk."

Grainger is a cast member of Showtime's "The Borgias."
