Sundance TV to Air Marathon of Original Miniseries THE HONORABLE WOMAN
In honor of the 67th Emmy(R) Awards, SundanceTV will air a marathon of the original eight-part series, "The Honorable Woman," which is nominated for four Emmy(C) Awards, starting Thursday, August 13th at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT.Among its four Emmy nominations are Outstanding Limited Series; Outstanding Writing For A Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special; Outstanding Directing For A Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series or a Movie (Maggie Gyllenhaal). The Primetime Emmy Awards will air on FOX in Sunday, September 20th. Hailed by critics as "a masterpiece," the politically charged spy thriller received an esteemed Peabody Award earlier this year. "The Honorable Woman," written and directed by BAFTA(R) winner Hugo Blick (The Shadow Line), follows Nessa Stein, portrayed by Golden Globe(R) winning actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, whose father was a Zionist arms procurer, and as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. As an adult, inheriting her father's company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, her sudden appointment to the House of Lords, apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom. The mini-series is executive produced by Drama Republic's Greg Brenman (Billy Elliot) and produced by Abi Bach (Small Island).
