FX & FX HD to premiere M. Night Shyamalan's 'Wayward Pines'

MUMBAI: FX and FX HD are all geared up to premiere the sci-fi thriller series Wayward Pines. 

Going on air from 22 February, the series will air every Monday to Friday at 9 pm.

Wayward Pines is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and developed by Chad Hodge for television.

Shyamalan said, “Well, I got the first book before it was published — maybe two, three months before — from a producer and read the book in one day and completely flipped out. I turned those pages as fast as I could and immediately knew that I had to turn it into a show. I was so grabbed by the single-player story-telling; I kind of like to call it. You’re really with Matt Dillion’s character, Ethan, and you’re feeling the experience of coming into this town with him and you’re kind of really in his head. People stare at him as he interacts with this crazy nurse and this crazy sheriff — why isn’t anybody talking to him? So it’s really almost like you’re in his head and I felt the same way when I was reading the book.”

The series stars Matt Dillon (Ethan Burke), as a US secret service agent investigating the disappearance of two fellow agents in the mysterious small town of Wayward Pines, Idaho. Ethan awakens from a car accident unable to contact the outside world, and unable to leave. He finds one of the agents dead and the other, his former lover Kate Hewson played by Carla Gugino, settled down in the seemingly idyllic town. But the inhabitants of Wayward Pines are trapped there by a set of rules enforced by the strict Sheriff Arnold Pope enacted by Terrence Howard, and any attempt to escape is punished by a public execution known as a reckoning. Ethan works to discover the truth, and has to make hard choices when he does.
