The legend of the deadly star crossed couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrows is, once again, being retold, but this time, as a four hour television miniseries. What makes the new "Bonnie and Clyde: Dead and Alive" mini-series different from the other television events occurring this month is that, not only did it air on three cable networks during multiple nights, but the producers also had an investment on it that was larger than usual.
