Texas Rising‘s plot synopsis: “HISTORY® brings to life the thrilling, gut-wrenching and inspiring true story of how the state of Texas fought for their independence from the commanding rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna (Martinez), ultimately forming one of America’s oldest and most legendary law enforcement agencies – The Texas Rangers. From rough-hewn Rangers with guns on their hips to the legendary “Yellow Rose of Texas” (Addai-Robinson), whose brains were matched only by her beauty, this is a story of the human spirit rising in the face of insurmountable odds and claiming a piece of history for themselves.”

Texas Rising is directed by two-time Academy Award®-nominated director Roland Joffé (Best Director, The Mission,1986; Best Director, The Killing Fields, 1985).
