Production will begin March 30 on the eight-episode Cinemax drama series “Quarry,” it was announced by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Based on the novels of Max Allan Collins, the show will be directed and executive produced by Greg Yaitanes (“Banshee,” “House, M.D.”), along with executive producer Steve Golin (“True Detective”). “Quarry” is created and executive produced by Graham Gordy & Michael D. Fuller (“Rectify”).
“Quarry” tells the story of Mac Conway, a Marine who returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. As he struggles to cope with his experiences at war, Conway is drawn into a network of killing and corruption that spans the length of the Mississippi River.
“Quarry” stars Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) in the title role; Jodi Balfour (Final Destination 5) as Joni; Peter Mullan (Olive Kitteridge) as The Broker; Nikki Amuka-Bird (“Luther”) as Ruth; and Damon Herriman (“Justified”) as Buddy; along with Jamie Hector (“The Wire”) as Arthur; Edoardo Ballerini (Romeo Must Die) as Karl; and Skipp Sudduth (Ronin) as Lloyd.
“This nuanced and dynamic show marks an exciting moment in the evolution of Cinemax programming,” said Lombardo.
