The future of “The Knick” remains uncertain some six months after its season-two finale, but Cinemax is bravely forging ahead with its original programming all the same. Next on the docket is “Quarry,” a new drama premiering this fall. Watch the teaser below.
The premium-cable network describes the drama as revolving around a Marine named Mac Conway who “returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. As he struggles to cope with his experiences at war, Conway is drawn into a network of killing and corruption that spans the length of the Mississippi River.” Logan Marshall-Green (“Prometheus”) plays the wayward veteran in question; joining him on the cast are Jodi Balfour, Peter Mullan, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Damon Herriman.
Graham Gordy & Michael D. Fuller created, wrote and executive-produced the series, whose first season will consist of eight episodes. “Quarry” premieres on Cinemax on Friday, September 9.
