SUNDANCE NOW TO EXPAND ITS OFFERINGS WITH THE LAUNCH OF ORIGINAL SCRIPTED PODCAST "EXETER" STARRING JEANNE TRIPPLEHORN AND RAY MCKINNON

The SVOD Service's First Scripted Podcast Features All-New Dynamic Captioning

"Exeter" to Premiere on Sundance Now in September 2018

Los Angeles, CA - July 28, 2018 - Sundance Now, AMC Networks' direct-to-consumer SVOD service curated with high quality dramas and crime thrillers, announced today from the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour that it is expanding its content offerings to include podcasts, beginning with its first-ever scripted podcast, "Exeter." Created by indie writer/director Ronnie Gunter (Lighter) and starring Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Big Love," "Grey Gardens") and Ray McKinnon ("Rectify," "Sons of Anarchy," "Deadwood"), "Exeter" will premiere on the service in September 2018.

The six-episode podcast series, produced by Insurrection Media, will be further brought to life with dynamic captioning -- also known as 'kinetic typography' -- a process by which words and phrases in the character's dialogue are animated to underscore emotion and heighten tension. This marks the first time this process has been utilized for a scripted dramatic podcast.

"Exeter" is a gripping crime mystery that follows a veteran detective, Colleen Clayton (Jeanne Tripplehorn), as she is forced to reconcile the errors of a past case when a woman she convicted of murder is exonerated after 10 years in prison. Det. Clayton struggles to keep the trust of her department as a series of grisly and ritualistic murders rock her decaying South Carolina town, putting her at odds with her ambitious partner, Lester Pruitt (McKinnon) and the department at large, as they race to put the pieces together.

"Sundance Now could not be more excited to be entering the scripted podcast space with such a riveting story, brilliantly brought to life by two outstanding actors -- the indomitable Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ray McKinnon, whom we are thrilled to have back in the Sundance fold," said Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager, Sundance Now. "'Exeter' embodies the best of the Sundance brand - it's high-quality, engaging storytelling that we know our audience responds to, with an innovative twist in the form of dynamic captioning. We are particularly excited about this process, as it will provide unprecedented access to audio content for our deaf audience."

"Exeter," produced by Insurrection Media, is executive produced by Ronnie Gunter, Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, Jordanna Fraiberg and Deborah Henderson and directed by Gunter. George Ducker and Ronnie Gunter co-wrote all six episodes. Icemen Audio (Evan Menak, Michael Capuano) is responsible for the sound design and mixing.
