“The Red Road: The Complete First Season” is a gripping, dramatic thriller that presents two distinct visions of America today as played out through the conflict between two different men.

After a terrible tragedy and cover-up further divides these worlds, an uneasy alliance is forged between the officer and a dangerous member of the tribe.
As each of the two men find themselves increasingly compromised by the other and the emotional ghosts of their collective pasts begin to emerge, the lives of both quickly unravel, leading to terrible consequences.

SUNDANCE TV’S ACTION-PACKED THRILLER
‘THE RED ROAD,’ STARRING JASON MOMOA, MARTIN HENDERSON AND JULIANNE NICHOLSON, RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON
ON APRIL 2, 10PM ET/PT
A shocking, high-profile murder shakes the town as the high-octane drama from acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski kicks off its sophomore season
New York – February 11, 2015 – SundanceTV announced today that the second season, 6 x 60, of its original scripted series “The Red Road” will kick off Thursday, April 2, at 10PM ET/PT.
Touted as “gripping” by The Associated Press, “The Red Road” doesn’t miss a beat of the action for its sophomore season. The hard-hitting thriller from acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband, Prisoners) and veteran producer Sarah Condon (“Looking,” “Bored to Death”), takes viewers on an unexpected journey to a deep, dark world where a local murder is just the tip of the iceberg. It sets off a ripple effect that forces everyone in town to question their values, allegiances and allies.
The season two opener jumps directly into the fallout from the adrenaline-filled shootout involving local cop Harold Jensen (Martin Henderson) and Philip Kopus (Jason Momoa), a dangerous member of a local Native American tribe. As Harold’s wife Jean (Julianne Nicholson) continues to put her life back together in the aftermath of season one’s events, rumors begin to swirl that the tribe’s newfound federal recognition will lead to the building of a casino up on the mountain. With tensions mounting, and Kopus’ mother Marie (Tamara Tunie) arguing vehemently against it, the stage is set for a shocking discovery. By the end of the opening episode an unexpected murder has taken place that hints at the ripped-from-the-headlines topics ahead, including toxic dumping which raises the stakes for all the characters.
In season two every character faces an ordeal: Jean learns of dark family secrets; Kopus battles his conscience; and, Harold must decide where his morals lie. Can they all find a path to redemption?
“After a thrilling inaugural journey down ‘The Red Road’, we are eager to continue this wild ride with fans into a new season,” said Sarah Barnett, President, SundanceTV. “Season two will continue to explore two opposing worlds, represented by our exceptional leading men Jason Momoa and Martin Henderson and the complex web of lies, compromises and shared history that seeps into their daily lives.”
Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones,” Road to Paloma), Martin Henderson (Devil’s Knot, The Ring), Julianne Nicholson (“Masters of Sex,” August: Osage County), Tamara Tunie (“Law And Order: Special Victim’s Unit,” “The Good Wife”), Lisa Bonet (High Fidelity, “The Cosby Show”), Allie Gonino (“The Lying Game,” Hidden Away), Kiowa Gordon (The Twilight Saga, Wind Walkers) and Golden Globe® nominee Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor, Heat) return to the series in season two, while Native American actor Wes Studi (Road to Paloma, “Hell On Wheels”) joins the cast as tribal chief Levi.
The series is executive produced by Guzikowski and Condon in addition to Randall Einhorn (“Fargo,” “Wilfred”), who has newly joined as an Executive Producer.
