FILMING STARTS IN MALAYSIA ON SEASON SIX OF CINEMAX ACTION SERIES "STRIKE BACK"

Filming has begun on the ten-episode sixth season of CINEMAX's high-octane drama series STRIKE BACK, which will be shot entirely in Malaysia. Returning stars Warren Brown ("Luther," "The Dark Knight Rises"), Daniel MacPherson ("A Wrinkle in Time") and Alin Sumarwata ("Neighbours," "Burning Man") are joined by new cast members Jamie Bamber ("Battlestar Galactica," "Monday Mornings") and Yasemin Allen ("Water and Fire").

When a Russian bomber crashes in the South China Sea, the covert special-ops soldiers of Section 20 - Thomas "Mac" McAllister (Warren Brown), Samuel Wyatt (Daniel MacPherson) and Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata) - are sent on a mission to investigate. There, they cross paths with Katrina Zarkova (Yasemin Allen), a rogue Russian operative with questionable loyalties.

Under orders of the new commanding officer, Col. Alexander Coltrane (Jamie Bamber), Section 20 pursues stolen contents of the Russian jet across Southeast Asia. They will work alongside the Malaysian police to shut down a Triad gang in Kuala Lumpur, uncover a corrupt plot by a wealthy Indian businesswoman running for Parliament and plunge into the jungles of the Golden Triangle in Myanmar, facing off against mercenary drug agents and terrifying warlords, as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens to push the world to the brink of global conflict.

"STRIKE BACK has reestablished CINEMAX as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series," notes Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. "We are delighted to offer Section 20 the opportunity to continue saving the world from mayhem and destruction."

Jack Lothian, writer and executive producer, says, "We're delighted to be back with CINEMAX and Sky for a new season of STRIKE BACK. We have fantastic actors and crew members who work incredibly hard to provide big-screen action for the small screen, with all the drama, high stakes, and mayhem that involves, and I can't wait for the audience to see the twists and turns we've got lined up."

Among the critical praise for the series, TVGuide.com described the previous season of STRIKE BACK as a "visually stunning" show that "regularly delivers action sequences on par with many feature films."

This new season marks CINEMAX's sixth - and UK co-producer Sky's seventh - in the STRIKE BACK franchise. In 2013, CINEMAX aired Sky's first season of the series as "Strike Back: Origins."
