EPIX CAPTURES ESPIONAGE DRAMA "DEEP STATE"

Eight-Episode Thriller From Fox Networks Group Content Distribution, Starring Mark Strong, To Premiere June 17 on EPIX

New York, NY and London, UK - March 16, 2018 - Premium cable network EPIX, an MGM company, today announced the premiere of DEEP STATE, the eight-episode espionage drama produced by Fox Networks Group Europe & Africa. Starring the critically-acclaimed actor Mark Strong, and Game of Thrones' Joe Dempsie, the gritty new drama is set to premiere on Sunday, June 17 at 9pm. Co-created, directed and written by Matthew Parkhill (Rogue) DEEP STATE is a grounded, visceral thriller, moving between the deeply personal story of a family man fighting to escape his past and the violent, dark excesses of government and global corporate power.

DEEP STATE centers around Max Easton (Mark Strong, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Zero Dark Thirty, Kingsman-The Golden Circle), an ex-spy whose past comes back to haunt him when he's summoned away from his new life in the Pyrenees by George White (Alistair Petrie, The Night Manager, Rogue One), head of covert MI6/CIA team "The Section." White convinces Max to return to the field to avenge the death of his estranged son Harry (Joe Dempsie, Game of Thrones, Skins). But the stakes are soon raised when Max finds himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war, immersed in a widespread conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos in the Middle East. Max enters into a dangerous game as powerful corporations demonstrate that they are willing to go to great lengths to protect their reputation and bury their secrets. With such a strong undercurrent of corruption, who can Max trust? Who is telling the truth? And what must be done to uncover it? To find out, Max is going to have to throw himself back into the dangerous and brutal life he so desperately tried to leave behind.

Said Michael Wright, President, EPIX, "DEEP STATE is a timely, and addictive, thriller that fits perfectly into EPIX's growing portfolio of premium original programming. With Matthew's smart storytelling, an excellent cast led by Mark Strong and a fantastic production and design team, we're very excited to bring this quality drama to an American audience."

Prentiss Fraser, MD and EVP of Fox Networks Group Content Distribution said: "Fox Europe and Africa has produced a stunning, intriguing and exciting series featuring amazing talent behind and in front of the camera. We are thrilled to be partnering with a raft of A-list platforms around the world, including EPIX, the premium cable network, as our anchor broadcaster in the US."

DEEP STATE features a stellar ensemble cast including the Olivier award winning and BAFTA/Tony nominated actor Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Zero Dark Thirty, Kingsman-The Golden Circle), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones, Skins), Karima McAdams (Vikings), Alistair Petrie (The Night Manager, Rogue One), Anastasia Griffith (Damages, Once Upon a Time), Lyne Renée (Split), Amelia Bullmore (Happy Valley), Kingsley Ben-Adir (King Arthur: Legend of The Sword), Pip Torrens (The Crown) and Fares Fares (Tyrant).

The extraordinary production team behind the project include Emmy(R) Award-winning producer Hilary Bevan Jones (Cracker, State of Play, Roald Dahl's Esio Trot), showrunner, writer, co-creator and director Matthew Parkhill (Rogue), co-creator, writer and executive producer Simon Maxwell (American Odyssey), director Robert Connolly (The Slap, Balibo), executive producers Alan Greenspan (Donnie Brasco, High Fidelity) and Helen Flint (Close to the Enemy), producers Tom Nash (The Escape Artist, The Dark Outside) and Khadija Alami (Homeland) and BAFTA Award-winning production designer Pat Campbell (Wolf Hall). Jeff Ford and Sara Johnson are the executive producers for Fox Networks Group, Europe & Africa.

The series is produced by Endor, a Red Arrow company. The deal was negotiated by Fox Networks Group Content Group, who also hold exclusive global distribution rights for the series, working in partnership with FNG Europe & Africa.
