Wayward Pines Teaser Drives In

Small, isolated towns that seem perfectly wonderful always have to end up harbouring dark, violent and potential twisted secrets. It’s a rule. It’s a thing. It’s a wonder anyone ever goes near them. But sometimes you just have to, or there’d be no drama. The teaser for M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge’s new mystery series Wayward Pines is online.

Hodge did the grunt work of crafting this one, adapting Blake Crouch’s novel Pines, but it’s Shyamalan’s name the PR material naturally wants to forefront. Yes, even after The Happening. And After Earth...

The plot finds a Secret Service agent named Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) crashing in the titular town while on the hunt for two missing colleagues. What he finds is a place that appears to be friendly and welcoming, but quickly reveals itself as gripped by terror and paranoia fuelled by the people who run the place. Burke discovers he can’t leave, and then there are the random phone calls, which order you to kill someone under pain of a terrible fate...

With Carla Gugino, Terrence Howard, Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossamon, Reed Diamond, Tim Griffin, Juliette Lewis and Melissa Leo in the cast, Wayward Pines runs as a ten-episode miniseries and will kick off from May 14, launching worldwide in more than 125 countries.
