NEW YORK -- Premium TV network EPIX(R) announced today the renewal of its first two original scripted series with a second season, 10-episode order for one-hour drama series "Berlin Station" and half-hour dramedy "Graves." Both series premiered Sunday, October 16 at 9pm and 10pm ET/PT, respectively, supported by an extensive national marketing and promotional campaign. The sixth episode for each series premieres this Sunday, November 20, and the season finales are on Sunday, December 18 on EPIX. Production on each is slated for early spring 2017. EPIX also recently announced the start of production on its third original series "Get Shorty," starring Ray Romano and Chris O'Dowd, from MGM Television.

"We're incredibly proud of the work our creators, executive producers, cast and crew did on the first seasons of 'Berlin Station' and 'Graves.' These ambitious series represent the level of prestigious, cinematic and authentic storytelling we are committed to offering our subscribers," said EPIX President and CEO Mark S. Greenberg. "Both series are particularly timely and relevant and quickly found their place in the competitive TV landscape. We couldn't be more excited to continue to tell these unique and compelling stories."

The one-hour, critically acclaimed, contemporary spy drama "Berlin Station" takes a look at the activity of a CIA office on a global stage in the midst of an investigation into a now-famous whistleblower. The series follows Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage, "Hannibal"), a new arrival at Berlin's CIA station who is on a clandestine mission to uncover the source of the Thomas Shaw leaks. Richard Jenkins ("Olive Kitteridge") stars as Steven Frost, the head of the station, who carries the burden of his own secrets; Michelle Forbes ("The Killing") stars as Valerie Edwards the no-nonsense Internal Branch Chief; Rhys Ifans (Snowden) stars as Hector DeJean, a dark, charming and tenacious case officer and old friend of Daniel; Leland Orser ("Ray Donovan") stars as Robert Kirsch, a devoted and successful deputy chief; and Tamlyn Tomita ("Resurrection") stars as Sandra Abe, the assistant to Frost and a quiet presence lording over the efficient operation of the station.

"EPIX is a great home for Berlin Station and on behalf of the entire team, we are excited to bring another season to life," said Amy Powell, President, Paramount TV. "Audiences have found, and continue to discover, this smart series and should expect even more from our stellar creative team in season two."

The half-hour, critically acclaimed, original dramedy "Graves" follows former two-term Republican President Richard Graves (Nick Nolte, A Walk In The Woods) 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. His enlightenment takes place as his wife Margaret (Sela Ward, Gone Girl), decides to pursue her own political ambitions. The series also stars Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) as over-eager assistant to President Graves, Isaiah Miller; Heléne Yorke ("Masters of Sex") as first daughter Olivia who moves back home when her life spirals out of control; Chris Lowell (The Help) as Jeremy, the underachieving first son who returns home from war in Afghanistan; and Callie Hernandez (Alien: Covenant) as Samantha, the free-spirited waitress who becomes the President's muse.

"With the country focused on electing a new President, we're excited to see that viewers haven't lost their sense of humor and have embraced Graves' fictional, funny and very human past president, as brought vibrantly to life by Nick Nolte and creator Joshua Michael Stern," said Kevin Beggs, Chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group. "We are thrilled to extend our partnership for a second season, and look forward to the new places Josh will take this memorable former First Family next year."

Produced by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, "Berlin Station" is created by New York Times best-selling author Olen Steinhauer (The Tourist, All The Old Knives, The Cairo Affair) who also serves as executive producer. Bradford Winters ("The Americans," "Boss," "Oz") is the showrunner and an executive producer. Academy Award(R) winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, "House of Cards") and Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content (Spotlight, The Revenant, "Mr. Robot," "True Detective") and Micha´┐Żl Roskam (Bullhead, The Drop) also serve as executive producers.

From Lionsgate, "Graves" was created by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote, Jobs) who also serves as showrunner and Academy Award(R) winner Greg Shapiro (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) is the executive producer. Executive Producers on the first season include Keith Eisner and Eric Weinberg, with David Iserson as Supervising Producer and Bill Hill, Lisa Parsons and Abby Genwanter as producers. The series was filmed in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
