PIVOT TO PREMIERE "FORTITUDE," NETWORK'S FIRST ORIGINAL DRAMA SERIES, ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 29 AT 10:00 PM ET WITH A TWO-HOUR TELEVISION EVENT

ARCTIC-SET THRILLER STARS STANLEY TUCCI, RICHARD DORMER, MICHAEL GAMBON & MORE

Los Angeles, December 19, 2014 - Pivot announced today that Fortitude, the network's first original scripted drama will premiere Thursday, January 29 at 10:00 pm ET with a special two-hour television event. The 12-part one-hour series, starring Stanley Tucci, Richard Dormer and Michael Gambon, airs Thursdays at 10:00 pm with encores every Friday at 10:00pm ET.

The dark drama series set in the melting Arctic, featuring psychological and thriller elements, tells the story of the small idyllic town of Fortitude, whose peaceful existence is shattered after a brutal and shocking murder. Above-average temperatures lead to a record ice melt revealing secrets long since hidden beneath the frozen landscape. Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer) leads the investigation and is forced to work alongside DCI Morton (Stanley Tucci), a detective who has flown into town from the mainland to contribute his forensic expertise. As the search for the killer progresses, their list of suspects - and suspicions of each other- grows.

Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones, The Hunger Games), Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, The King's Speech), Christopher Eccleston (Thor: The Dark World, Lucan), Sofie Gr�b�l (The Killing), Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones, Good Vibrations), Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife, The Woman In Black), Luke Treadaway (Clash of the Titans), Nicholas Pinnock (Top Boy), Ver�nica Echegui (The Cold Light of Day), and Johnny Harris (This is England) star in the series, which was co-produced with Sky Atlantic and filmed in Iceland and the UK.

"For our first foray into scripted drama, we wanted to find a world that is intriguing and distinctive, and one that can highlight issues in an unexpected way," said Belisa Balaban, EVP of Programming. "Fortitude spins a dramatic thriller around the unique characters who are drawn to this Arctic community, and a complex story around the potential unintended consequences of man's impact on the environment."

Fortitude is a Sky/Pivot Original Series, with international distribution handled by Sky Vision. The series is created, written, and executive produced by Simon Donald. Jeff Skoll and Holly Hines serve as executive producers for Pivot. Patrick Spence and Frith Tiplady serve as executive producers for Fifty Fathoms and Tiger Aspect. Anne Mensah and Cameron Roach serve as executive producers for Sky Atlantic.
