Amazon Prime Video Adds "Fearless," from Acclaimed "Homeland" Executive Producer Patrick Harbinson, to its Original Dramatic Series Lineup

All six episodes of the legal thriller, starring BAFTA award winners Helen McCrory and Michael Gambon, will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the US on Friday, October 27

SEATTLE - Oct. 3, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it has added Fearless to its lineup of original dramatic series, and will premiere all six episodes exclusively on Prime Video in the US on Friday, October 27. Starring BAFTA award winners Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders, Penny Dreadful) and Sir Michael Gambon (Fortitude), produced by Mammoth Screen for ITV in association with Weinstein Television, and written and executive produced by Homeland writer and Executive Producer Patrick Harbinson, Fearless is a legal conspiracy thriller following human rights lawyer Emma Banville (McCrory), whose latest case will uncover a web of secrets and collusion with both personal and national repercussions.

In the series, Emma sets out to prove the innocence of Kevin Russell (Sam Swainsbury, Mum), a man who she feels was wrongly convicted for the murder of schoolgirl Linda Simms (Eve Austin, In the Flesh) 14 years earlier. Emma is determined to reveal the truth behind Linda's death and is prepared to go to extreme lengths to prove Kevin's innocence. However, as she digs deeper into the case-risking her career, personal life and reputation-she begins to sense powerful forces in the police and the intelligence services who want to stop her from uncovering the truth.

"We are excited to add this riveting drama to Prime Video," said Brad Beale, Vice President, Worldwide TV Content Acquisition. "Patrick Harbinson is brilliant at telling gripping stories, and the compelling performances by the cast will keep viewers at the edge of their seats."

Fearless also stars BAFTA Award winner Wunmi Mosaku (Black Mirror), Jonathan Forbes (Catastrophe), John Bishop (Accused), Rebecca Callard (Ordinary Lies), Jamie Bamber (Marcella), Sam Swainsbury (Mum), Emma Hamilton (Mr. Selfridge) and Emmy nominee Robin Weigert (American Horror Story).

The series premiered on ITV in the UK this summer. The first season of Fearless was the most watched drama series across its six weeks on the ITV Hub. Here is what the UK critics have to say:

· "Promises to be one of those must-see series that gets everyone talking" - TV Magazine (The Sun)

· "Gripping and undeniably intriguing" - Gerard Donovan, Daily Telegraph

· "Helen McCrory's performance in Fearless is captivating" - Sarah Deen, Metro.co.uk

· "A confident, absorbing first chapter" - Gabriel Tate, Daily Telegraph

· "A dense plot [and] a strong cast" - Victoria Segal, Culture (Sunday Times)

An Amazon Original Series in the US and produced by Mammoth Screen for ITV in association with Weinstein Television in the UK, Fearless is produced by Adrian Sturges (Houdini and Doyle, The Enfield Haunting) and executive produced by Harbinson along with Mammoth Screen's managing director, Damien Timmer (Victoria, Poldark) and Tom Mullens (Endeavor, Black Work). The series was developed by Mammoth's Creative Director Rebecca Keane and directed by BAFTA winner Pete Travis (The Go-Between, Legacy).

Fearless will be available for Prime members to stream and enjoy using the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online with other Amazon Original Series online at Amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership.
