"Deep State"
Premieres Sunday, June 17 at 9 PM ET/PT on EPIX
 
          Deep State is a grounded, visceral thriller, moving between the deeply personal story of a family man fighting to escape his past and the violent, dark excesses of government and global corporate power. The series centers around Max Easton (Mark Strong), an ex-spy whose past comes back to haunt him when he’s summoned away from his new life in the Pyrenees by George White (Alistair Petrie), head of covert MI6/CIA team “The Section.” White convinces Max to return to the field to avenge the death of his estranged son Harry (Joe Dempsie). 
 
         But the stakes are soon raised when Max finds himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war, immersed in a widespread conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos in the Middle East. Max enters into a dangerous game as powerful corporations demonstrate that they are willing to go to great lengths to protect their reputation and bury their secrets. 
 
         With such a strong undercurrent of corruption, who can Max trust? Who is telling the truth? And what must be done to uncover it? To find out, Max is going to have to throw himself back into the dangerous and brutal life he so desperately tried to leave behind. 
 
Deep State also features Karima McAdams, Anastasia Griffith, Lyne Renée, Amelia Bullmore, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Pip Torrens and Fares Fares.
