"Kingdom" to Premiere on DirecTV's Audience Network Wednesday, October 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Frank Grillo, Joanna Going, Nick Jonas, Matt Lauria, Kiele Sanchez and Jonathan Tucker to Star

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June. 11, 2014 - DirecTV confirmed today, their new original one-hour drama series from creator Byron Balasco ("Detroit 1-8-7") and Endemol Studios ("Hell on Wheels," "Low Winter Sun," "Red Widow") will be called "Kingdom" and will make its debut Wednesday, October 8 at 9p.m. on Audience Network. The one-hour drama, which was based on a spec script titled "Navy St.," was sold by Endemol Studios to DirecTV as a straight-to-series order (10 episodes). "Kingdom" will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

"Kingdom" is a story about family, loyalty, ambition, glory, lust, betrayal and the raw-nerve needs and desires that inspire people to greatness or drive them to unthinkable treachery. The series takes place in Venice, California and is set against the backdrop of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). The "Kingdom" cast is led by Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Homefront, Warrior), who returns to the ring to play Alvey "King" Kulina. Kiele Sanchez ("The Glades," "Lost") plays Lisa Prince, his long-time girlfriend. Matt Lauria ("Friday Night Lights") plays Ryan Revis, the intelligent, good looking world-class athlete who had it all, including Lisa Prince, who shows up at Alvey's gym after doing time in prison, which was precipitated by a spiraling drug addiction. Jonathan Tucker ("Parenthood") plays Jay, Alvey's eldest son, once a promising fighter, who is struggling with addiction. Nick Jonas plays Nate, Alvey's youngest son and the prized fighter at the gym. Joanna Going ("House of Cards," "Mad Men") plays Christina, Alvey's estranged wife and mother to Jay and Nate.

Series creator Balasco is executive producer and showrunner. "Kingdom" is produced by Endemol Studios. The series will be distributed internationally by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.
