An epic saga about the secret history of the 1930's American heartland, Damnation centers on the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden, God and greed, charlatans, and prophets. The pilot introduces Seth Davenport (Killian Scott, 71), a man masquerading as a small town Iowa preacher in the hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo. Focused on his mission, he is unaware that an industrialist tycoon has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creeley Turner (Logan Marshall-Green, Quarry) to stop the uprising by any means necessary. But unbeknownst to those around them, these two men already share a secret bloody past.
From executive producers Tony Tost (Longmire), James Mangold (Logan), and Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones) and Daniel Rappaport (“Office Space”) on behalf of Entertainment 360, the pilot was written and created by Tost and directed by and executive produced by David MacKenzie (Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water). The series is expected to premiere in October 2017. Netflix, who co-produces the series with Universal Cable Productions, will have first-run rights to the series outside of the U.S.
