Tonight is the premiere of Cinemax‘s next original programming show, Banshee. The series is set in a small Pennsylvania town called Banshee, which is in the middle of Amish country. As the story goes, it features an ex-con and master thief named Lucas Hood played by Antony Starr, who after disappearing for 15 years, returns and assumes the identity of a murdered sheriff. Hood then goes on to inflict his own brand of justice, all while he is working up plans that serves his own interests. Banshee is created by Alan Ball, who recently stepped down as showrunner for the sixth season of HBO’s True Blood. After the great two season of the Strike Back series, and the strong premiere of Hunted, I’m looking forward to checking this out. Banshee premieres tonight at 10pm EST on Cinemax.
