Premieres June 17, 2018 on EPIX

Deep State centers around Max Easton (Mark Strong, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Zero Dark Thirty, Kingsman-The Golden Circle), 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, The Night Manager, Rogue One), 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, Game of Thrones, Skins). 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 features a stellar ensemble cast including the Olivier award winning and BAFTA/Tony nominated actor Mark Strong, Joe Dempsie, Karima McAdams (Vikings), Alistair Petrie, Anastasia Griffith (Damages, Once Upon a Time), Lyne Renée (Split), Amelia Bullmore (Happy Valley), Kingsley Ben-Adir (King Arthur: Legend of The Sword), Pip Torrens (The Crown) and Fares Fares (Tyrant).
