DESCRIPTION:
(from DirecTV's press release, October 2013) DirecTV's Audience Network continues to provide viewers with unconventional, provocative programming with the addition of two celebrated British series, the critically acclaimed, award-winning Black Mirror and the conspiracy thriller Secret State, which will premiere Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT respectively. Secret State, produced by Company Pictures, part of all3medi, stars Gabriel Byrne as Tom Dawkins, the reluctant hero at the heart of this contemporary conspiracy thriller, who finds himself thrust into the spotlight of front-line politics and risks everything by taking on the might of the Establishment. Following a devastating industrial accident that leaves several people dead and raises awkward questions about the safety procedures of the US petrochemical company involved., Dawkins, a man who has a profound belief in transparency and open government, tackles vested interests, financial and military, both domestic and international, in his pursuit to uncover the truth and get justice for the families affected by the disaster.
