NEW CINEMAX ACTION SERIES "BANSHEE," FROM A TEAM INCLUDING ALAN BALL AND GREG YAITANES, TO DEBUT JAN. 11

HBO/CINEMAX has confirmed the debut of BANSHEE, with the ten-episode drama series scheduled to launch FRIDAY, JAN. 11 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on CINEMAX.

Executive produced by Alan Ball, Greg Yaitanes, Peter Macdissi, Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler, the primetime action series stars Antony Starr ("Rush") as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa., where he continues his criminal activities, even as he's hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier. The production was shot in and around Charlotte, NC.

The series also stars Ivana Milicevic ("Charlie's Angels," HBO's "Mind of the Married Man") as Carrie Hopewell, Hood's former partner in crime, who now lives in Banshee under an assumed identity with her new family, who know nothing of her past; Ulrich Thomsen ("The Celebration") as Proctor, an intimidating, wealthy local businessman who believes he is above the law; Frankie Faison ("The Good Wife," HBO's "The Wire") as Sugar Bates, a wise, powerful former boxer and ex-con who now owns the local watering hole; Rus Blackwell ("Burn Notice," HBO's "Recount") as Gulf War hero Gordon Hopewell, Banshee's district attorney, who is married to Carrie; Ryann Shane ("Blue Bloods") as Deva Hopewell, Carrie and Gordon's rebellious daughter; and Ben Cross ("Star Trek," "Ben Hur") as Mr. Rabbit, a ruthless Ukrainian gangster who has been hunting Lucas and Carrie, his former top thieves, for 15 years.

Other cast regulars include Demetrius Grosse ("Justified") as Emmett Yawners, a deputy in the Banshee sheriff department; Trieste Kelly Dunn ("Brothers and Sisters") as Siobhan Kelly, a spitfire female deputy in the sheriff's department; Matt Servitto (HBO's "The Sopranos") as Brock Lotus, the longest-serving deputy in the Banshee sheriff department, who is threatened by Hood's new role as sheriff; Lili Simmons ("Fat Kid Rules the World") as Rebecca Bowman, a local Amish girl in her early 20s who lives a devout life by day, but is a rebellious, sexually adventurous party girl by night; Hoon Lee ("Premium Rush") as Job, a dangerous transvestite computer hacker who assists Lucas in his criminal enterprises; and Daniel Ross Owens ("Prison Break") as Dan Kendall, Banshee's young, idealistic mayor.

Scripts were conceived and written by Tropper and Schickler. The directors are Yaitanes (Emmy(R) winner for "House M.D."), S.J. Clarkson ("EastEnders," "Dexter," CINEMAX's "Hunted"), Ole Madsen ("Edderkoppen," "Flame and Citron"), Dean White ("Once Upon a Time") and Miguel Sapochnik ("Repo Men," "House M.D.").

BANSHEE is the latest primetime drama to be added to the CINEMAX slate. The Emmy(R)-nominated hit action series "Strike Back" just completed its second season and will return in 2013, and "Hunted," the new spy thriller from creator and writer Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files"), debuts tomorrow, Oct. 19.
