DESCRIPTION:
(from Starz's press release, December 2016) The STARZ Original series "Counterpart" began production on the 10-episode first season of the spy thriller from MRC (Media Rights Capital), Gilbert Films and Anonymous Content. Filming has commenced in Los Angeles and will continue in additional locations across the U.S. and Europe in 2017. The espionage thriller with a metaphysical twist stars Oscar(R) winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, The Accountant, Juno), Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, Hyde Park on Hudson, "Manhattan") and Harry Lloyd (The Theory of Everything, Jane Eyre, "Manhattan"). Academy Award(R) nominee Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Passengers) directed the first episode. "Counterpart" is the story of 'Howard Silk' (JK Simmons), a lowly cog in a bureaucratic agency, who discovers that the agency he works for is really guarding a crossing into a parallel dimension. Through Howard and his "Counterpart" on the other side, the show will navigate themes of identity, what ifs, and lost love. Starz ordered two seasons of 10 episodes each of "Counterpart" in 2015.
