Sundance Releases First 12 Minutes of New Drama
The Sundance Channel had an incredible 2013. The network, in its first season of debuting original programing, had three critical hits: Top of the Lake, Rectify,
and the US premiere of the French drama The Returned
. In March, the network will look to capitalize on its success with its latest new drama The Red Road
The series, created by Aaron Guzikowski (who wrote the film Prisoners
), deals with the racial tensions between a federally unrecognized Native American tribe and the white locals in the town. The cast includes Julianne Nicholson (most recently seen in Masters of Sex
and in the film August: Osage County
) as the wife of the town sheriff, Jason Momoa (the dearly departed Kahl Drogo from Game of Thrones
) as one of the members of the Native American tribe, and Tom Sizemore as a shady drug dealer. Lisa Bonet is also set to make an appearance on the series.
The Red Road
is set to begin on February 27th on Sundance, but Buzzfeed has a special sneak peek at the first twelve minutes of the pilot here
, so you can check the series out before its premiere.
