Out on DVD on 17 August, Wayward Pines is an eerily magnetizing 10-episode series that is said to provoke echoes of cult classics such as Twin Peaks, Lost and even The Truman Show. Adapted from Blake Crouch’s novels with an M. Night Shyamalan-directed pilot.
Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Oscar-nominee Matt Dillon: Crash) arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, Idaho on a mission to find two missing federal agents. Instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. What’s wrong with Wayward Pines? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive…
WAYWARD PINES is host to a myriad of mysterious residents, played by an expert ensemble cast including Academy Award winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter) as sinister Nurse Pam, Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard (Prisoners) as the enigmatic Sheriff Pope, Carla Guigno (Sin City) as the evasive Kate Hewson and Golden
Globe nominee Toby Jones (The Girl) as the duplicitous Dr. Jenkins. The cast also features Hope Davis (The Newsroom), Juliette Lewis (Secrets and Lies), Reed Diamond (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) and Shannyn Sosaamon (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang).
