ComingSoon is excited to debut the poster and exclusive Downeast trailer for the gritty drama. The Joe Raffa-directed film stars Greg Finley, who also developed the drama.

It is set to debut on digital HD and cable video on demand starting July 13 on a number of digital and cable platforms, including iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Comcast, Spectrum, and Cox.
Downeast dives into the often-ignored seedy underbelly of Maine, following Emma Maddox as she returns to her hometown, haunted by the mysterious death of her brother Mikey years ago. As she reconnects with his best friend Tommy, the two rekindle their flame and Emma begins to uncover the web of lies the town has been keeping. Will Emma get the closure she so desperately seeks, or fall victim to the town’s turbulent ways?
