Amazon’s Tin Star, starring Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks, gets a trailer and premiere date
Amazon‘s upcoming drama Tin Star has gotten a brand-new trailer and a release date. The ten-episode series stars BAFTA award-winner Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight) and Emmy nominated Christina Hendricks (Mad Men). Tin Star is written by Rowan Joffé (28 Weeks Later, The American) and produced by Kudos (The Tunnel: Sabotage, Humans, Broadchurch). Tin Star will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on September 29. You can watch the trailer in the player below.
Set in the majestic Canadian Rockies, Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth (Roth), a former British detective now small town police chief, who brings his family to the tiny, tranquil town of Little Big Bear for a better life. When a vast new oil refinery, fronted by corporate liaison Elizabeth Bradshaw (Hendricks), opens nearby and their new home is flooded with workers looking for drugs, gambling and prostitution, Jim has to work hard to protect his family and the town from organized crime.
Then crime strikes back. And when Jim’s family suffers a shocking tragedy, old, dark and dangerous secrets surface. We discover that Jim is not the man we think he is but is in fact ‘Jack’ – the professional name for his alcoholic alter-ego: a man more unpredictable, more charismatic and infinitely more menacing than Jim.
Tin Star also stars Genevieve O’Reilly (Star Wars, The Honourable Woman), Abigail Lawrie (The Casual Vacancy), Oliver Coopersmith (Dickensian), Christopher Heyerdahl (True Blood, Hell on Wheels), Stephen Walters (Outlander), Ian Puleston-Davies (Marcella), Roark Critchlow (Pretty Little Liars), Sarah Podemski (Cashing In), Ryan Kennedy (Major Crimes) and Kevin Hanchard (Orphan Black).
