DirecTV Announces Start of Production on "Rogue" Starring Thandie Newton and Marton Csokas

Produced by Entertainment One and Greenroom Entertainment, Series to Air on DirecTV's Audience Network Summer 2013

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- DirecTV, in association with Entertainment One (eOne) and Greenroom Entertainment, announced today that on August 22 production will commence in Vancouver on 10 episodes of the suspense-drama ROGUE, starring Thandie Newton (Mission Impossible 2, Crash) and Marton Csokas (The Debt, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring). The series will air on DirecTV's Audience Network next summer 2013.

ROGUE revolves around Grace (Newton), a morally and emotionally conflicted undercover detective who is tormented by the possibility that her own actions contributed to her son's death. Grace's search for the truth is further complicated by her forbidden relationship with Jimmy (Csokas), the crime boss who may have played a hand in the crime. A smart, complex, character-led thriller, the show explores loss, grief, identity, family bonds, second chances and redemption. Both Grace and Jimmy not only struggle with who they are, they also struggle with who they want to be. Both cross the line - morally, emotionally, sexually - with devastating consequences for their own lives and those around them.

DirecTV expands on its commitment to offer quality, exclusive programming to its customers after establishing great success in providing a home and new creative life to Emmy-winning series such as Damages and Friday Night Lights, and exclusive, first-run series like Hit & Miss, Underbelly and The Slap.

A Canada-UK coproduction, ROGUE is executive produced by renowned UK producer/director Nick Hamm for Greenroom Entertainment; John Morayniss and Michael Rosenberg for eOne; and Steven Marrs from Momentum Entertainment Group, who also helped broker the deal with DirecTV. Series creator Matthew Parkhill (The Caller) also serves as writer and supervising producer.

In addition to Newton and Csokas, the cast includes Ian Hart (Luck), Claudia Ferri (The Killing), Joshua Sasse (Frankenstein's Army, The Big I am), Jonathan Holmes, Sarah Jeffrey, Ian Tracey (Intelligence, Hell on Wheels), Jarod Joseph (Fringe), Matthew Beard (And When Did You Last See Your Father, An Education), and Martin Donovan (Simple Men, Weeds). Brian Kirk (Luck, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire) directs the first episode.

eOne handles worldwide distribution.
