Sundance Channel‘s second original scripted series The Red Road will debut at 9 PM on February 27, the channel said today. The six-episode dramatic thriller centers around local sheriff (Martin Henderson) as he struggles to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up just outside of New York City, and the neighboring mountains — home of a federally unrecognized Native American tribe. After a tragedy and cover-up, an uneasy alliance is forged between the officer and a dangerous member of the tribe, and the lives of both unravel, leading to terrible consequences (see trailer below). Jason Momoa, Julianne Nicholson, Tamara Tunie, Annalise Basso, Allie Gonino, Kiowa Gordon, Lisa Bonet and Tom Sizemore also star. The Red Road hails from writer Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband, Prisoners) and producer Sarah Condon (Bored To Death). Guzikowski and Condon executive produce and Bridget Carpenter is executive producer and showrunner. James Gray (The Immigrant, Two Lovers, We Own The Night) directed the first episode.
Sundance Channel’s first original scripted series Rectify returns for a second season in 2014. The channel will also premiere the original mini-series The Honorable Woman in 2014.
