Fox’s limited event series Wayward Pines will receive its UK premiere on FOX UK on Thursday May 14th at 9pm, as part of a day-and-date release which will see the series launch in more than 125 countries (including the United States) on that same day.
Based on Blake Crouch’s best-selling novel Pines, Wayward Pines hails from M. Night Shyamalan and follows US Secret Service agent Ethan Burke as he arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But 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.
FOX UK acquired the series back in May 2014 as part of a larger global deal inked between parent company Fox International Channels and Fox Broadcasting Company & FX Productions. Wayward Pines features a large cast which includes 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 drama is based on a spec-script written by Chad Hodge and is produced by FX Productions with Shyamalan, Hodge, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan serving as executive producers.
