Cinemax’s STRIKE BACK has struck for the last time and BANSHEE has only one more season ahead of it. Thus, Cinemax needs new series to fill the void. Enter QUARRY and OUTCAST. Some video footage from each proves that the shows are both just about ready to premiere. First, we look at QUARRY.
We put it to this site’s attention back in February. In it we learned that the network had optioned the Max Allen Collin novels this series is based on. Now Cinemax has information about the show on its site, including the following synopsis and tease.
QUARRY is the story of Mac Conway, a Marine who returns home to Memphis, Tennessee from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. As he struggles to cope with his experiences at war, Conway is drawn into a network of killing and corruption that spans the length of the Mississippi River. The one-hour drama stars Logan Marshall-Green, Jodi Balfour, Peter Mullan, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Damon Herriman. Based on the novels of Max Allan Collins, the show will be directed and executive produced by Greg Yaitanes, along with executive producer Steve Golin. Created and executive produced by Graham Gordy & Michael D. Fuller.
We told you Cinemax was interested in the exorcism drama called OUTCAST this time last year. It has been getting quite a buzz, including at Comic-Con, as it ramped up production.
Cinemax states –
OUTCAST follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.
Now, shall we see what a trailer reveals?
Yeah, a bit creepy, wouldn’t you say? Better yet here is a scene that dropped at Comic-Con as well.
Now that is not creepy, that is downright disturbing! What’s more disturbing is that HBO passed on OUTCAST which is coming on Cinemax in 2016. Do you wish you had Cinemax?
