Actor Jason Carmichael plays King in The Meeting. He says that while the plot is steeped in history, The Meeting is not a history lesson. “This is about two very real men. There are some elements that are fiction, yes, but the story reflects the truth. They seemed to have started off very far apart, but [at the time of The Meeting], they were moving closer together. We’ll never know what would have happened if the two met, but [The Meeting] gives us a good idea of what could have happened.” 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays.
