Deep State, a new espionage thriller starring Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), will arrive on FOX this April.
Also starring Joe Dempsie (Game Of Thrones), Alistair Petrie (The Night Manager), Karima McAdams (Vikings), Anastasia Griffith (Damages, Once Upon a Time), Lyne Renée (Split), Amelia Bullmore (Happy Valley), Kingsley Ben-Adir (King Arthur: Legend of The Sword), Pip Torrens (The Crown) and Fares Fares (Tyrant), Deep State promises to deliver edge-of-your-seat twists and turns.
Deep State centres around Max Easton (Strong), an ex-spy whose past comes back to haunt him when he’s summoned away from his new life in the Pyrenees by George White (Petrie), head of covert MI6/CIA team “The Section”. White convinces Max to return to the field to avenge the death of his estranged son Harry (Dempsie).
But the stakes are soon raised when Max finds himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war, immersed in a widespread conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos in the Middle East. Max enters into a dangerous game as powerful corporations demonstrate that they are willing to go to great lengths to protect their reputation and bury their secrets. With such a strong undercurrent of corruption, who can Max trust? Who is telling the truth? And what must be done to uncover it? To find out, Max is going to have to throw himself back into the dangerous and brutal life he so desperately tried to leave behind.
Deep State was co-created, directed and written by Matthew Parkhill (Rogue).
Jeff Ford, SVP Content Development and Sara Johnson, VP, Scripted Drama, FNG Europe & Africa said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Deep State to our schedules. As FNG’s first regionally scripted commission, Deep State is built on our Hollywood heritage and we’re so proud of what we’ve created alongside the talented team at Endor Productions. We can’t wait for audiences to experience the show and only hope they love it as much as we do.”
