Sky Atlantic Release First Images Of Tim Roth & Christina Hendricks In ‘Tin Star’
Sky Atlantic today released the first images of Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight, Lie To Me) and Emmy nominated Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Firefly) from the set of their latest epic drama Tin Star. Due to air in 2017, Tin Star is an ten-part series about the corruption of innocence; of murder, of grief and of all consuming revenge – set against the backdrop of a remote mountain town.
Currently filming in the beautiful and remote Rocky Mountains of Canada, Tin Star is produced by Kudos, the makers of BAFTA award-winning Broadchurch and Humans, and is penned by acclaimed screenwriter Rowan Joffe (28 Weeks Later, The American).
Tin Star is the story of Jim Worth (Roth) an expat British police officer starting a new life with his family as a police chief in Little Big Bear, an idyllic town near the Rocky Mountains. Not long after their arrival, the opening of an oil refinery nearby leads to Little Big Bear becoming a boom town, bringing with it a wave of drugs, prostitution and organised crime.
When Jim takes a stand against the oil company fronted by Mrs Bradshaw (Hendricks), it’s not long before someone makes an attempt on his life. But when Jim ducks the bullet meant for him it leaves a member of his family dead instead. With the gang of killers still in town, the police chief becomes hell-bent on violent revenge.
Tin Star is one of a number of new dramas commisioned by Sky recently, including The Young Pope starring Jude Law, action/adventure series Hooten & The Lady, Guerrilla starring Idris Elba, Riviera featuring Julia Stiles, Adrian Lester & Iwan Rheon, Delicious starring Dawn French, historical dramas Jamestown & Britannia and The Last Dragonslayer based on the Jasper Fforde’s novels. There are also returning series including Fortitude Season 2 starring Dennis Quaid, Gomorrah Season 2 and the return of Agatha Raisin.
Tin Star will air on Sky Atlantic in 2017.
