Sky Atlantic will binge-release all episodes of Tin Star Season 1 on September 7, 2017.
In success, the simultaneous release strategy will increase the buzz around the series, reeling in more viewers and acquisitions, thus boosting its Season 2 renewal chances.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Canadian Rockies in the idyllic but troubled small town of Little Big Bear, Tin Star unleashes a cinematic, sometimes blackly comic, thrill ride of a story. At the heart of the show is a virtuoso performance from the extraordinary Tim Roth, who plays Jim Worth – an expat British police chief who has come to Canada with his family to start a new life.
However, his much-longed-for peace and tranquillity is shattered when a family member is brutally murdered in a horrifying act of seemingly random violence. This one moment unleashes the hellion demon of his dark alcoholic past as Worth embarks on a path of bloody vengeance, setting in motion a lethal chain of events with devastating consequences for those caught up in the wreckage of his former life.
With a background of movie screenwriting, it’s been an ambition of mine to author an epic piece of cinema in a long-series format. To me this means a certain kind of dramatic landscape, classical themes of illicit love, familial corruption, grief and all-consuming revenge as well as characters of a particular stature on dangerous, labyrinthine journeys of discovery.
As previously announced, Tin Star will be available to stream in the US on Amazon.
Tin Star Season 2 or cancelled? Stay tuned for updates…
