Having appeared in spy films such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and the two Kingsman films, Mark Strong is now set for his first leading spy role in FOX’s upcoming series Deep State. The network has released the first trailer for the series, and we have it for you below…
Easton is a retired spy whose past comes back to haunt him after the death of his friend George White, played by Alistair Petrie (The Night Manager). Setting out to avenge White’s death, Easton finds himself in the middle of a global covert intelligence war being waged that aims to profit off the chaos in the Middle East.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Deep State to our schedules,” said Jeff Ford, SVP, Content Development and Sara Johnson, VP, Scripted Drama, Fox Networks Group Europe & Africa. “As FNG’s first regionally scripted commission, Deep State is built on our Hollywood heritage and we’re so proud of what we’ve created alongside the talented team at Endor Productions. We can’t wait for audiences to experience the show and only hope they love it as much as we do.”
“Deep State is an exhilarating and emotional thriller underscored by an intensely topical and relevant subject matter,” said Hilary Bevan, the series’ executive producer. “We’re excited to unveil the first trailer and new images in anticipation of the series launch in the spring. I couldn’t be more excited to share Deep State with Fox’s viewers in the UK.”
Deep State premieres on April 5th.
