Sky has released a first look teaser of new crime drama Tin Star.
The new crime thriller follows Jim Worth (Tim Roth), an ex-Metropolitan police detective as he starts a new life with his family in an idyllic community in the remote Rocky Mountains.
However, the tranquility is short-lived with the arrival of an oil company, fronted by Mrs Bradshaw (Christina Hendricks), whose workers bring a debaucherous scene of drugs, prostitution and crime to the town.
When Worth takes a stand against their behaviour, his actions seem to have tragic consequences as one of his family members is devastatingly murdered by a mysterious assassin.
As he begins a dark and vengeful quest for answers, secrets from his path begin to emerge and his search for the truth poses a threat to the rural town, and his own family.
“As a movie screenwriter I saw Tin Star as an opportunity to author an epic piece of cinema in the long-form series format," said writer of the show, Rowan Joffe (28 Weeks Later).
"This means vast landscapes, classic themes, complex characters on dangerous journeys - and performances of the highest calibre.”
The ten part drama, produced by Kudos (Broadchurch and Humans), will air on Sky Atlantic later this year.
Alison Jackson, executive producer at Kudos, commented, “Revenge, grief, love and betrayal, Tin Star is an emotionally charged, fast-paced thriller packed with fascinating characters: characters whose very real and very dark inner lives, take this beyond a simple whodunit."
She added, "Combined with the visually arresting locations of the Canadian Rockies, the highly charged, visceral nature of Rowan’s storytelling packs a genuine punch, and to have actors as irresistible and accomplished as Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks to bring it all to life is just beyond exciting.”
