Sundance Channel's THE RED ROAD Starts Production, Cast Includes Martin Henderson, Jason Momoa, Julianne Nicholson, Allie Gonino & Tamara Tunie

Jason Momoa, Allie Gonino and Tamara Tunie are among the stars of
Sundance Channel's THE RED ROAD.
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 (HOME AND AWAY), Jason Momoa (GAME OF THRONES), Julianne Nicholson (BOARDWALK EMPIRE). Tamara Tunie (AS THE WORLD TURNS), Annalise Basso, Allie Gonino (THE LYING GAME), Kiowa Gordon (The Twilight Saga) and Golden Globe nominee Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan). 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 and veteran producer Sarah Condon. The series will be executive produced by Guzikowski and Condon, and Bridget Carpenter (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Award winning director James Gray 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.
