More4 Sets October UK Premiere Date For ‘Berlin Station’ Season 1 Starring Richard Armitage
More4 has set an October UK premiere date for Season 1 of the contemporary spy drama ‘Berlin Station‘ the broadcaster has announced.
From acclaimed author Olen Steinhauer (‘The Tourist’, ‘All The Old Knives’), ‘Berlin Station’ follows the activities of CIA operatives on a global stage amid investigations of moles, terrorists, corrupt politicians and more. Transitioning from his job as a CIA analyst in the U.S., cerebral officer Daniel Miller’s (Richard Armitage – ‘Hannibal’, ‘The Hobbit’) new mission puts him undercover at the agency’s Berlin branch, tasked with sorting out messy cases involving damaging leaks, whistle-blowers, terrorism and more.
Mentored by jaded veteran officer Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans – ‘Snowden’, ‘Elementary’) Daniel learns the disorderly world of fieldwork means dealing with deception, danger and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital’s hall of mirrors and discovers conspiracies that lead back to Washington, D.C., he wonders if anyone can ever be the same after a posting to Berlin.
Armitage and Ifans are joined by a stunning cast which includes Richard Jenkins (‘The Shape of Water’), Ashley Judd (‘Twin Peaks’, ‘Divergent’), Keke Palmer (‘Grease Live!’, ‘Scream Queens’), Leland Orser (‘Ray Donovan’) and Michelle Forbes (‘The Killing’).
‘Berlin Station’ was executive produced by Steinhauer, Academy Award winner Eric Roth (‘Forrest Gump’, ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, ‘House of Cards’), Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content (‘True Detective’, ‘The Knick’, ‘Mr. Robot’). The series is produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content. The show, which airs on Epix in the US, has already aired 2 Seasons across the Atlantic, with a 3rd Season due late 2018/early 2019.
