DESCRIPTION: (from Sundance Channel's press release, May 2014) SundanceTV announced today that "The Honorable Woman," starring Academy Award(R) nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal (Crazy Heart, The Dark Knight, Secretary), will premiere Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. "The Honorable Woman" is a fast paced, labyrinthine thriller set against an international political backdrop of paranoia and espionage. The eight-part miniseries is written and directed by BAFTA Award(R) winner Hugo Blick (The Shadow Line) and follows one woman's personal journey from London's Whitehall and MI6 to the CIA in Washington to the Middle East to right the wrongs of her family's past. The Hollywood Reporter touted Blick's gripping drama as one of this summer's "Hottest New Fiction Shows." "The Honorable Woman" follows Nessa Stein (Gyllenhaal), whose father was a Zionist arms procurer; as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. Years later, after inheriting her father's company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, her sudden appointment to the House of Lords, apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom.
