Hernan Lopez, President and CEO of FOX International Channels said, “This series has all the makings of an international hit – a spectacular, world-renowned cast, thrills crafted by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan, and a global FOX launch platform reaching more than 350 million viewers. We are also excited by the early interest the show is generating with potential buyers, and confident that these partnerships will amplify the scale and impact the series will have around the world.”
Based on a best-selling novel by Blake Crouch, “Wayward Pines” follows Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon), who arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, Idaho on a mission to find two missing federal agents. 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.
Developed for television by Chad Hodge (“The Playboy Club”) and executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense”), Hodge, Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”), and Ashwin Rajan (“After Earth,” “Devil”) “Wayward Pines” stars a high-profile ensemble cast, including Matt Dillon (“Crash”), Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”), Toby Jones (“The Hunger Games”), Carla Gugino (“Watchmen”), Terrence Howard (“The Butler”) and Juliette Lewis (“August: Osage County”).
The 10 part series will premiere globally during the 2014/15 Broadcast Season.
