Sneak Peek at Sundance Channel’s Rectify


The gripping drama Rectify, Sundance Channel’s first wholly-owned scripted series, was created by acclaimed actor/filmmaker Ray McKinnon (The Accountant) and produced by Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, producers of the award-winning television series Breaking Bad. When Daniel Holden (Aden Young) is suddenly released from prison after 19 years on Death Row, it reopens a mystery that defined a small town. Having spent his adult life waiting to die, Daniel must now learn how to live in a world, a community and a family he no longer knows. His return divides the small Georgia town, and the man who became a state senator on the heels of his conviction is dead set on putting him back behind bars. Daniel’s release reignites the mystery, the power plays and the questionable justice that condemned him.
Rectify features a talented ensemble cast of established and rising stars including celebrated Australian Aden Young (Killer Elite), Abigail Spencer (Cowboys and Aliens), J. Smith-Cameron (True Blood), Luke Kirby (Slings and Arrows), Clayne Crawford (24), Adelaide Clemens (No One Lives), Bruce McKinnon (The Way Home), Jake Austin Walker (The Chaperone), Michael O’Neill (Transformers) and Hal Holbrook (Into the Wild). The six-part series features six directors, each known for their groundbreaking independent films and television series, including Keith Gordon (The Killing); Billy Gierhart (The Walking Dead); Nicole Kassell (The Woodsman); Jim McKay (Breaking Bad); Romeo Tirone (True Blood); and Raymond McKinnon.
