Cinemax has had great success with its recent run of original programming. First, there was Steven Soderbergh’s historical medical drama “The Knick,” which concluded its second season last year, and then supernatural horror series “Outcast,” which will conclude its debut season on August 12th. Now, the network is set to debut its new crime drama “Quarry,” loosely based on the series of novels by mystery writer Max Allan Collins.
The series follows Mac Conway (Logan Marshall-Green), a Marine who returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by his family and demonized by the public. Alienated by his surroundings and other people, Conway becomes drawn into an underground network of contract killers that spans the length of the Mississippi River. The series also stars Jodi Balfour (“The Best Laid Plans”), Peter Mullan (“My Name Is Joe”), Nikki Amuka-Bird (“Jupiter Ascending”), Damon Herriman (“Justified”), Jamie Hector (“The Wire”), and more. Watch the trailer for the series below and check out the poster as well.
The series is created by Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller, both staff writers on the acclaimed SundanceTV drama “Rectify.” Anonymous Content co-produces the series. It’s directed by Emmy-winner Greg Yaitanes, best known for directing episodes of “House,” “Lost,” “Prison Break,” and “Banshee.” Meanwhile, Logan Marshall-Green is best known for his performances in “Prometheus,” “The Invitation” and the TNT drama “Dark Blue.”
The eight-episode season will premiere on Cinemax on September 9th.
