Rectify - Cast almost assembled

After HBO (1st & Ten) and Showtime (Brothers) in the 80s, after TNT, SyFy, USA, MTV, Comedy Central and Lifetime in the late 90s, after FX (The Shield) in 2002, after ABC Family (Wildfire) in 2005, after IFC (Minor Accomplishments), Spike (Blade) and TBS (My Boys) in 2006, after AMC (Mad Men) and Starz (Head Case) in 2007, after A&E (The Cleaner) in 2008, after TV Land (Hot in Cleveland) in 2010, after Cinemax (Strike Back) in 2011, after Netflix (Lilyhammer) and BBC America (Copper) in 2012, and finally after DirecTV's Audience Network (Rogue) in 2013*, The Sundance Channel is the latest cable channel to foray into the market of original scripted series with Rectify.

Rectify is an upcoming drama series (6 episodes) created by Ray McKinnon, Oscar-winning director/writer (for his 2001 short film The Accountants) mostly known for his acting career, in roles like Reverend H.W Smith in season 1 of Deadwood and recently Lincoln Potter in season 4 of Sons of Anarchy. The show will be produced by Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson, executive producers of seasons 1, 3 and 4 of Breaking Bad.

Rectify follows the life of Daniel Holden upon his release from jail after serving 19 years on Georgia’s Death Row before DNA evidence disputed the State’s original case. Holden was 18 when convicted and sentenced to die for the brutal rape and murder of a 16-year old girl. Now, he returns to his family and to his hometown where the murder occurred and where many still believe he is guilty. Daniel spent all of his adult life waiting to die, now he must learn how to live again or decide if he even wants to while others choose whether or not he will have that chance.

It's been announced on November 3. And now, 6 months later, Deadline revealed most of the main cast members :

— Abigail Spencer (Mad Men, Hawthorne) will play Daniel's sister.
— Clayne Crawford (24, Justified) will play Ted, Daniel's step-brother.
— Adelaide Clemens (The Pacific, Parade's End) will play Ted's wife.
— Jonah Lotan (24, Generation Kill) will play Daniel's lawyer.
— J. Smith Cameron (True Blood, K Street) will play Daniel's mother.

The only question is : who will play Daniel Holden ? Casting is underway for the lead actor of this promising series.

* Seasons 3, 4 and 5 of Friday Night Lights did air first on DirecTV from 2008 to 2011, and Damages season 4 has aired exclusively on DirecTV last summer (same for the upcoming fifth and final season this summer ; FX has no ties to the show anymore), but Rogue will be DirecTV's first actual creation (you can learn more about that right here).

PS : I hate this new version of Blogger, grrr. The thread is now updated with spaces between phrases.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
