Sky Atlantic’s newest original drama series Tin Star will premiere on Thursday September 7th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth, an ex-Metropolitan police detective who has moved with his family to the Rocky Mountains to start a new life as a local police chief in an idyllic rural community. When his small town is overrun by migrant workers from a massive new oil refinery, the wave of drugs, prostitution and organised crime that follows them threatens to sweep away everything in its wake.
When Jim makes a stand, his act appears to prompt mysterious assassins to unleash sudden and violent retribution on Jim and his family; the resulting tragedy irrevocably shattering the peace they had found in this once perfect mountain idyll and transforming their remote sanctuary into a hellish and inescapable prison. The ten episode drama series is produced by Kudos and stars Tim Roth, Christina Hendricks, Christopher Heyerdahl, Genevieve O’Reilly, Abigail Lawrie, Oliver Coopersmith, Stephen Walters, Ian Puleston-Davies, Roark Critchlow, Sarah Podemski and Kevin Hanchard.
