First Trailer: USA Network/Netflix Co-Production ‘Damnation’

USA Network in the United States has dropped the first trailer for their period drama Damnation, which is being co-produced by Netflix and will air on this side of the pond on the UK arm of the global streaming service.

Described as an epic saga of the secret history of the 1930s American heartland, Damnation follows Seth Davenport, a man masquerading as a small town Iowa preacher in the hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo. Focused on his mission, he is unaware that an industrialist tycoon has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creeley Turner to stop the uprising by any means necessary. But unbeknownst to those around them, these two men already share a secret bloody past.

The drama series, which was created by Tony Tost, is produced by Universal Cable Productions in association with Netflix and stars Killian Scott (71) and Logan Marshall-Green (Quarry). The executive producers are Tony Tost (Longmire), James Mangold (Logan) and Guymon Casady (Game Of Thrones) and Daniel Rappaport (Office Space) on behalf of Entertainment 360. The pilot was directed and executive produced by David MacKenzie (Hell Or High Water). While a firm premiere date has not yet been set, the series is expected to launch in October.
