If you feel like it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with all the new TV shows, that’s because it is. Every year, more and more networks are getting into the original programming game, and on Sunday, Epix makes their scripted drama debut with a double line-up of the political comedy Graves and the modern-day espionage thriller Berlin Station.
The 10-episode, one-hour drama follows Richard Armitage‘s CIA Agent Daniel Miller to contemporary Germany where he is set on a clandestine mission to discover the identity of the famous whistle-blower “Thomas Shaw”. Bradford Winters, who previously penned episodes of The Americans and Oz, serves as showrunner for the series, and it’s lined up one hell of a cast. In addition to Armitage, Berlin Station stars Michelle Forbes, Richard Jenkins, Rhys Ifans, and Leland Orser.
Today, we’ve got an exclusive clip showing off the tactical tension of the spy drama, with a boardroom battle of the wits between Forbes and Jenkins’ formidable agents. You can check out Allison’s Berlin Station write-up in our extensive Fall TV Guide, and get an early look in the exclusive clip below.
Berlin Station premieres Sunday, October 16th on Epix. Here’s the official synopsis.
A contemporary spy series consisting of 10 one-hour episodes, follows Daniel Miller, (Richard Armitage), who has just arrived at the CIA station in Berlin, Germany. Miller has a clandestine mission: to determine the identity of a now-famous whistleblower masquerading as “Thomas Shaw.” Guided by jaded veteran Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans) Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field officer — agent-running, deception, danger and moral compromises.
Produced by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, the series creator/executive producer is New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer (The Tourist, All The Old Knives, The Cairo Affair). Bradford Winters (“Dig,” “The Americans,” “Boss,” “Oz”) is the showrunner and an executive producer.
