SUNDANCE CHANNEL WILL AIR A MARATHON OF THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SERIES, "RECTIFY," NOVEMBER 23rd AT 2:00PM

Viewers Can Catch Up On The Series That The Los Angeles Times Called "A Revelation That Sets A New Standard"

NEW YORK November 8, 2013 - Sundance Channel's original series "Rectify" will air in its entirety on November 23, 2013 beginning at 2:00pm. The six-episode hour-long series, created and written by Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, That Evening Sun, Mud) and executive produced by Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (the Emmy Award(R) winning team behind "Breaking Bad"), premiered to rave reviews earlier this year and will return for a second season in 2014.

TV Guide, gave the series 10 out of 10 and hailed the series as "the most absorbing, unsettling and unexpectedly humane drama... on TV so far this year." TIME agreed, declaring "Rectify" to be "one of the best things I expect to see on TV all year." The Daily Beast called it "a breathtaking work of immense beauty and a thought-provoking meditation on the nature of crime and punishment, of identity and solitude, of guilt and absolution. It is, quite simply the best new show of 2013." Damien Echols of the West Memphis Three reviewed the series for The Huffington Post, lauding it as a "powerful and realistic show which more than holds the viewer's attention."

When Daniel Holden (Aden Young) is released after nearly 20 years of complete isolation on death row, he returns as an outsider to his family, to his community, and to the times. Somehow, he survived the mental and emotional strain of his imprisonment, but now the walls have suddenly come crumbling down and Daniel is set free in a world he no longer understands. He's an outsider, lost in a once familiar world, struggling to navigate his new found freedom. Combined with two decades of technological and social changes to his small town and the larger world, everything he encounters is a puzzle.

Daniel's unexpected presence not only throws his family into disarray, it ripples out to all the people connected to his case - the prosecutor who rode the notoriety to become a State Senator, the Sheriff who pushed the boundaries of the investigation, and the entire town of Paulie, GA, that blamed him for killing one of their own. Like a deadly spark, Daniel's release reignites the mystery, the power plays, and the questionable justice that condemned him.

Also starring in "Rectify" alongside Aden Young (Killer Elite, The Tree) as Daniel Holden are Abigail Spencer ("Burning Love", Oz the Great and Powerful), who portrays Amantha Holden, Daniel Holden's younger sister who believes completely in his innocence and has devoted her entire adult life to securing his release; J. Smith Cameron ("True Blood", Margaret) who plays Janet Talbot, Daniel's loving mother, who has been living with the impending death of her son for nineteen years, and who long ago had made peace with the loss of her son, giving up on any hope for his release; Luke Kirby (Take this Waltz, "Slings and Arrows") tackles the role of Jon Stern, Daniel's lawyer who works for an organization dedicated to exonerating the wrongfully convicted; Clayne Crawford (A Walk to Remember) portrays Ted Talbot, Jr., Daniel's stepbrother whom he had never previously met; and Adelaide Clemens ("Parade's End", The Great Gatsby) plays Tawney Talbot, Ted's kind-hearted wife; Bruce McKinnon (The Way Home) as Daniel's step father Ted Sr.; Jake Austin Walker (The Chaperone) as Daniel's half brother Jared; Michael O'Neill (Transformers) as Senator Roland Foulkes; and Hal Holbrook (Into the Wild) as Rutherford Gaines, Daniel's former attorney.
