Vanity Fair: EPIX Premieres a Slate of Original Programming That Shows Us What Matters Now
The EPIX Original Series Graves, a single-camera, 10x30minute dramedy, tells the story of President Richard Graves (Nick Nolte), a former two-term POTUS as he embarks on a Don Quixote-like quest to right the wrongs of his administration and reclaim his legacy 25 years after leaving the White House. With topics ranging from immigration to gay rights, to foreign policy to public funding for arts and sciences, Graves holds nothing sacred as he unspools some of his administration’s proudest victories. His enlightenment takes place just as his wife Margaret Graves (Sela Ward) decides it’s finally time for her to pursue her own political ambitions. The cast also includes: Skylar Astin, Heléne Yorke, Chris Lowell, Callie Hernandez, Nia Vardalos, Ernie Hudson, Roger Bart and Angélica Maria.
Produced by Lionsgate, Josh Michael Stern (Swing Vote, Jobs) is the creator/showrunner, Academy Award®winner Greg Shapiro (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) is the executive producer and Bill Hill (“Veep,” “Eastbound & Down”) is the producer. Serving as executive producers along with Stern and Shapiro are Keith Eisner (“The Good Wife”) and Eric Weinberg (“Scrubs”). The supervising producer is David Iserson (“Mad Men”) and Lisa Parsons (“Arrested Development”) and Nick Nolte are also producers on the series.
The series was filmed in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The EPIX Original Series Berlin Station, a contemporary spy series consisting of 10 one-hour episodes, follows Daniel Miller, (Richard Armitage), who has just arrived at the CIA station in Berlin, Germany. Miller has a clandestine mission: to determine the identity of a now-famous whistleblower masquerading as “Thomas Shaw.” Guided by jaded veteran Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans) Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field officer — agent-running, deception, danger and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital’s hall of mirrors and uncovers the threads of a conspiracy that leads back to Washington, Daniel wonders: Can anyone ever be the same after a posting to Berlin?
The ensemble cast also stars Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes, Leland Orser and Tamlyn Tomita.
