DECIPHER "THE CODE" WITH DAN SPIELMAN, ASHLEY ZUKERMAN AND LUCY LAWLESS ON OVATION TV STARTING AUGUST 1

Thrilling Six-Part Aussie Crime Drama Set to Air Saturday Nights

Los Angeles, CA - June 29, 2020 - Based on the success of its recent mystery titles such as Frankie Drake Mysteries, Murdoch Mysteries and Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime, Ovation TV, America's only arts network, will air Australian crime drama The Code, starring Dan Spielman (Stateless), Ashley Zukerman (Succession) and Lucy Lawless (Ash vs Evil Dead), starting Saturday, August 1 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT.

Stretching from the spectacular red desert of Australia's outback to the cool corridors of power in Canberra, The Code tells the story of two very different brothers who unearth information those at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep secret. Ned Banks (Dan Spielman) has spent the last ten years juggling a stalling career as an online journalist with the care of his talented but troubled brother Jesse (Ashley Zukerman).

Ned thinks his big break has finally come after coming in contact with Alex Wisham (Lucy Lawless), a local schoolteacher. Two of her students are involved in a car accident; she has phone footage of the crash. With Jesse's help, Ned is able to clean up the video. Its contents are shocking, and the decision to publish will light the wick on a story too explosive to be contained.

Episode descriptions are below:

Episode 1 airs Saturday, August 1 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT

When Ned (Dan Spielman) and Jesse Banks (Ashley Zukerman) publish a video of a mysterious accident in the outback involving two teenagers and a truck from a highly classified research facility, they face the full weight of a political machine desperate to keep the truth off the front pages.

Episode 2 airs Saturday, August 8 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT

As Ned (Dan Spielman) investigates the truck accident in the remote town of Lindara, Jesse (Ashley Zukerman) comes face to face with the 'extraordinary' new powers of the law.

Episode 3 airs Saturday, August 15 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT

Wracked by guilt that Jesse (Ashley Zukerman) has paid such a high price for trying to help his investigation - Ned (Dan Spielman) fears the worst when he discovers Jesse missing.

Episode 4 airs Saturday, August 22 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT

Ned (Dan Spielman) and Jesse (Ashley Zukerman) are on the run, and running out of options ... their house has been ransacked, their phones bugged, their every computer stroke tracked. With Alex (Lucy Lawless)'s help, Ned and Jesse are able to hack into a hospital system.

Episode 5 airs Saturday, August 29 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT

Ned (Dan Spielman) and Jesse (Ashley Zukerman) are forced into an impossible choice - Hani (Adele Perovic)'s life in exchange for technology capable of wiping entire cities from the face of the earth.

Episode 6 airs Saturday, September 5 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT

Unless Ned (Dan Spielman) and Jesse (Ashley Zukerman) take action, their fates will be sealed, their story repackaged and the truth will remain neatly beneath the radar. It is time to do something radical.

All episodes will be available on demand and on the Ovation NOW app.
