Deep State



Episode 7 - Season 1


DEEP STATE is a brilliant new international espionage thriller starring Mark Strong as Max Easton, an ex-spy brought back into the field to avenge the death of his son (who had followed in his footstep), only to find himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war and a conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos throughout the Middle East.The story unfolds across the UK, U.S., Iran, Lebanon and France and contains a profound political dimension that asks questions about the connection between the representatives of the people and the big industries that profit from global conflicts. It’s a story of supremely high stakes, a conspiracy that could topple governments and along the way includes hostage rescues, shoot-outs and manhunts. However, at its core, DEEP STATE is an emotional drama about a family "in extremis" in which intimate, intense personal relationships are pitted against an epic backdrop.Visceral and riveting, DEEP STATE is a rich, multi-layered drama with involving characters and a thrilling espionage storyline that raises prescient questions about big business, war and global politics. Ultimately, it is the journey of a man fighting to ensure the safety of those he loves, in the knowledge that you can never really have a second chance at life.
