SUNDANCE NOW'S FIRST-EVER ORIGINAL SCRIPTED PODCAST "EXETER," STARRING JEANNE TRIPPLEHORN AND RAY MCKINNON, WILL PREMIERE ON THE SERVICE STARTING THURSDAY OCTOBER 25

The Enthralling, Six-Part Crime Story will be Brought to Life on Sundance Now Commercial-free and with all new Dynamic Captions

Season Two of "Exeter" Has Been Greenlit and Will Premiere in Early 2019

New York, NY - September 26, 2018 - Sundance Now, AMC Networks' direct-to-consumer SVOD service curated with high-quality dramas and crime thrillers, announced today that "Exeter," its first-ever scripted podcast, will premiere Thursday, October 25th. Season 2 of the thriller podcast series has also been greenlit with new episodes slated to premiere in early 2019.

"'Exeter' is an innovative project and my first foray into the scripted podcast space. I love living in the world Ronnie Gunter created and exploring the character of Colleen Clayton in this medium. She's a loner and very strong - almost to a fault - who lives for her work as a detective as well as taking care of her brother," said Jeanne Tripplehorn, "I'm thrilled to team up with Sundance Now."

"Sundance is a trusted home for a project as innovative as 'Exeter,'" said Ray McKinnon. "It's a brand that respects creative voices and embraces out-of-the-ordinary forms of storytelling. I'm well-versed in Sundance traditions, thanks to my time working with the team on 'Rectify,' and am thrilled to be welcomed back into the family."

"I am so thankful to have Sundance Now help bring the people and crimes of "Exeter" to life, said Ronnie Gunter writer/director of the series. "It's been a pleasure working with the team at Sundance Now and I am honored to be a part of their programming. Here's to making up murders and solving them."

The six-episode podcast series, created by indie writer/director Ronnie Gunter (Lighter), stars Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Big Love," "Grey Gardens") and Ray McKinnon ("Rectify," "Sons of Anarchy," "Deadwood"). "Exeter," will be further brought to life utilizing dynamic captions, 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. The presentation will not only introduce a deaf audience to a previously inaccessible format, but also create an exclusive, unique visual experience for fans of the traditional audio drama. 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. Detective 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) as they race to put the pieces together.

"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. The dynamic captions were created by Paul Cooper.
