SEASON TWO OF SUNDANCETV'S CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SERIES "RECTIFY" BEGINS PRODUCTION

New York, New York - February 3, 2014 - SundanceTV announced today that production has commenced on the highly anticipated sophomore season of its original drama series "Rectify." The hour-long drama was created and written by Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, That Evening Sun, Mud), who also serves as executive producer on the project under his shingle Zip Works. Production will once again take place in Griffin, GA. The ten-episode second season will air in Summer 2014.

"Rectify," which debuted in 2013 to overwhelming critical acclaim, was the first wholly-owned SundanceTV scripted production. Included on over 35 year-end "best of" lists, including Time, TV Guide, and A.V. Club, season one was heralded by The Daily Beast as "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." Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times said "'Rectify' is a revelation that sets a new standard," while Matt Roush of TV Guide gave the series a "10 out of 10," commenting that 'Rectify' is "impeccably written and acted, quietly suspenseful and achingly poignant."

Season one of "Rectify" depicted the first week in the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) following his release from death row to a world he no longer understood, to build a life he may not be allowed to keep. As Daniel tried to find a place in his reconfigured family and within a community deeply divided about his return, his presence reignited old wounds and introduced unexpected complications for those closest to him. In season two we find Daniel unsure if he wants to live or die, if he's guilty or innocent and if it ultimately even matters. The season will track Daniel's journey to find meaning in his life in the face of a dangerous and unpredictable world. It will also delve into the lives changed indelibly by Daniel's return.

Gran Via's Mark Johnson (Rain Man, "Breaking Bad") and Melissa Bernstein ("Breaking Bad", "Halt and Catch Fire") are executive producers. Robin Sweet (The Reluctant Fundamentalist) is a Producer, Director of Photography is Paul Sommers ("The Vampire Diaries"), Production Designer is Hugh D.G. Moody ("The Glades") and Costume Designer is Carol Cutshall ("One Tree Hill").

Starring are: Aden Young (Killer Elite, The Tree) as Daniel, Abigail Spencer ("Burning Love", Oz: The Great & Powerful) as Daniel's sister Amantha, J. Smith-Cameron ("True Blood") as Daniel's mother Janet, Luke Kirby (Take This Waltz, Mania Days) as Daniel's lawyer Jon Stern, Clayne Crawford ("24," "Justified") as Daniel's stepbrother Ted Jr., Adelaide Clemens ("Parade's End," The Great Gatsby) as Ted Jr.'s wife Tawney, Bruce McKinnon (The Way Home) as Daniel's stepfather Ted Sr., and Jake Austin Walker (The Chaperone) as Daniel's half- brother Jared.
