New York, NY – August 15, 2013 –Sundance Channel announced today the cast and start of production for its gripping new original scripted series THE RED ROAD. The full cast includes Martin Henderson (Devil’s Knot, The Ring, Smokin’ Aces), Jason Momoa (Wolves, “Game of Thrones”), Julianne Nicholson (August: Osage County, “Boardwalk Empire”). Tamara Tunie (“Law and Order: Special Victim’s Unit,” “The Good Wife”), Annalise Basso (Oculus, Standing Up) Allie Gonino (“The Lying Game,” Hidden Away), Kiowa Gordon (The Twilight Saga, Wind Walkers) and Golden Globe® nominee Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor, Heat). Production will begin in Atlanta on August 19th.

THE RED ROAD is a hard-hitting drama that revolves around a local cop (Henderson) struggling to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring mountains, home of a Native American tribe.  After a terrible tragedy and coverup occurs involving the cop’s wife (Nicholson), an unholy alliance is forged between the cop and Phillip Kopus (Momoa), a dangerous member of the tribe that will come back to haunt all involved.

As was previously announced, THE RED ROAD has been picked up for six one-hour episodes and hails from acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband, Prisoners) and veteran producer Sarah Condon (“Bored to Death”). The series will be executive produced by Guzikowski and Condon, and Bridget Carpenter (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Award winning director James Gray (The Immigrant, Two Lovers, We Own The Night) will direct the first episode.  THE RED ROAD is Sundance Channel’s second wholly owned original scripted series; its first was the acclaimed RECTIFY, which returns for a second season in 2014.

Sundance Channel recently received a record ten Primetime Emmy® nominations for its original scripted miniseries TOP OF THE LAKE and RESTLESS.
