Executive produced by Alan Ball (True Blood, Six Feet Under) and Greg Yaitanes (House, Lost), the action drama centers on an ex-convict and master thief (Antony Starr) who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, PA, where he continues his criminal activities even as he’s being hunted by the shadowy gangsters he had betrayed years earlier.

Cinemax began production on the series in and around Charlotte, NC in May and officially wrapped production on Season 1 in September.

Banshee will premiere this Friday, January 11 at 10pm on Cinemax.
