DirecTV orders Thandie Newton drama 'Rogue' to series
DirecTV has ordered 10 episodes of "Rogue," starring Thandie Newton.
The suspense drama will begin production in August and will premiere in the summer of 2013 as the first original drama ordered by and produced for the Audience Network.
[The "ordered by and produced for" differentiates between "Rogue" and later seasons of "Damages" and "Friday Night Lights," which were produced for DirecTV.]
"There’s an excitement in the hallways of DIRECTV as ROGUE will be the first original series on the Audience Network that will be built from the ground up with the specific goal to provide DIRECTV customers with a premium entertainment experience they can’t get anywhere else," blurbs Chris Long, senior vice president Entertainment and Production for DirecTV.
"Rogue" stars Newton as a cop, tormented by the belief she was responsible for her son's death. She's also in a relationship with a crime boss, which is all awkward and stuff.
The series was created by Matthew Parkhill ("The Caller").
