First Trailer For Sky Atlantic’s ‘Tin Star’ Starring Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks
Today we get our first sneak peak at ‘Tin Star‘ starring Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks, as the lush little mountain town of Little Big Bear opens its doors for business.
After starting a new life with his beloved wife and children in the peace and quiet of the remote Rocky Mountains, police chief Jim Worth (Roth) finally feels he has found the life he was searching for.
However, the tranquillity is short-lived as the arrival of huge numbers of workers from a new oil refinery leads to a wave of drugs, prostitution and organised crime. Shockingly, this coincides with the horrific murder of one of Jim’s family. His obsessive quest to find the truth behind this mysterious killing drives a revelatory story about love, corruption, grief and the all-consuming nature of revenge. Reigniting behaviour from his dark past, his journey leads to a personal battle with a long-buried demon that will not just defeat his enemies but threatens to destroy those he loves most.
‘Tin Star’ is created by Rowan Joffe (28 Weeks Later, Brighton Rock) and produced by Kudos, the makers of Broadchurch, Humans, Life On Mars, and a host of other incredible UK drama. “As a movie screenwriter I saw Tin Star as an opportunity to author an epic piece of cinema in the long-form series format,” comments Joffe “This means vast landscapes, classic themes, complex characters on dangerous journeys – and performances of the highest calibre.”
The entertaining and provocative 10 part drama is described as “an epic revenge-fuelled ride that brings a whole new meaning to the term law enforcement.”
‘Tin Star‘ is coming soon to Sky Atlantic and TV streaming service NOW TV.
