Three new series at coming to EPIX this fall, including two new dramas and a docu-series.
BERLIN STATION is a 10-episode one-hour contemporary spy drama. The series follows Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage) who has just arrived at the CIA station in Berlin, Germany. “Daniel has a clandestine mission: to determine the identity of a now-famous whistleblower masquerading as ‘Thomas Shaw’. Guided by jaded veteran Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans), Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field officer — agent-running, deception, danger and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital’s hall of mirrors and uncovers the threads of a conspiracy that leads back to Washington, Daniel wonders: Can anyone ever be the same after a posting to Berlin?” The ensemble cast also features Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes, Leland Orser, Tamlyn Tomita and Mina Tander. BERLIN STATION will premiere on Sunday, October 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on EPIX.
GRAVES is a single-camera, 10-episode half-hour dramedy that tells the story of President Richard Graves (Nick Nolte), a former two-term POTUS as he embarks on “a Don Quixote-like quest to right the wrongs of his administration and reclaim his legacy 25 years after leaving the White House. With topics ranging from immigration to gay rights, foreign policy and public funding for arts and sciences, Graves holds nothing sacred as he unspools some of his administration’s proudest victories. His enlightenment takes place just as his wife Margaret Graves (Sela Ward) decides it’s finally time for her to pursue her own political ambitions.” The cast also includes: Skylar Astin, Heléne Yorke, Chris Lowell, Callie Hernandez, Nia Vardalos, Ernie Hudson, Roger Bart and Angélica Maria. GRAVES premieres on Sunday, October 16 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on EPIX.
Finally, AMERICA DIVIDED is the docu-series executive produced by Norman Lear, Shonda Rhimes and Common that features “timely narratives around inequality in education, housing, healthcare, labor, criminal justice and the political system – all woven into an eight-story, five-part series.” The five, 60-minute episodes will air as follows: premiere on September 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT; Episode 2 on October 7, Episode 3 on October 14, Episode 4 on October 28, and the finale on November 4.
