FILMING BEGINS ON CINEMAX SUSPENSE SERIES "NEMESIS," STARRING MELISSA GEORGE AND CREATED BY FRANK SPOTNITZ

Kudos Produces For CINEMAX And BBC One In Association With Big Light

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2011 - Production has begun on NEMESIS, an original drama series set in the world of international espionage starring Melissa George ("30 Days of Night," HBO's "In Treatment") and written and created by Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files," CINEMAX's "Strike Back"). The eight episodes will shoot in Scotland, London and Morocco and air on CINEMAX in 2012. Also starring Adam Rayner ("Hawthorne"), the series is produced by Kudos Film & Television ("MI-5," "Life on Mars") for BBC One and HBO/CINEMAX in association with Big Light Productions.

Says Spotnitz, "I'm incredibly excited about the ambition of this series. It's got action on a cinematic scale, huge story twists and turns, and intriguing characters who are both emotionally and morally complex. I can't imagine a better cast, director or production team to bring it all to life."

Award-winning writer Spotnitz also serves as executive producer along with Alison Jackson, Jane Featherstone and Stephen Garrett from Kudos Film & Television and Christopher Aird from the BBC. Eliza Mellor ("Albert Schweitzer," "Derek") produces, and SJ Clarkson ("Heroes," "Life On Mars") directs the first two episodes.

George plays Sam, a highly skilled operative for an elite private intelligence firm, who survives an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team. Once she returns to the firm, she performs her secretive duties without knowing who to trust or who wants her dead. Rayner plays Sam's love interest and colleague at work. The dedicated members of the firm, who operate in the shadows, often confront life and death situations on secret missions and are sometimes unaware of who or what they're fighting for.

The cast of NEMESIS also includes Stephen Dillane (HBO's "Game of Thrones" and "John Adams"), Morven Christie ("The Young Victoria"), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Lost," CINEMAX's "Strike Back"), Lex Shrapnel ("Captain America: The First Avenger"), Uriel Emil ("Criminal Justice"), Patrick Malahide ("Billy Elliot," HBO's "Five Days"), Stephen Campbell Moore ("The Bank Job," "The History Boys") and Oscar Kennedy ("Toast").
