Jason Momoa's Newest Role on the Sundance Channel

Jason Momoa lands new role on Sundance Channel production
Hey Jason Momoa fans, check this out:

Jason Momoa (Stargate Atlantis, Game of Thrones) was cast in the lead role for an upcoming TV series called The Red Road.  (It was formerly known as The Descendants.)

The Red Road will have six one-hour episodes and is the second series that Sundance had total production control over.  Their first series was Rectify, and that was a somberly good TV show in its first season.

If Rectify is any hint at how they handle their own productions, I expect some pretty good TV from The Red Road and a great opportunity for Jason's career.

“THE RED ROAD” (Formally “The Descendants”)
New York, NY - July, 2013 –Sundance Channel announced today that Jason Momoa (“Wolves,” Game of Thrones) has been cast in a lead role in the network’s next original scripted series “The Red Road” (formally “The Descendants”).  Today’s news comes on the heels of Emmy® announcements in which Sundance Channel received a record ten PrimeTime Emmy® nominations for its miniseries “Top of the Lake” and “Restless.” 

As was previously announced, “The Red Road” has been picked up for six one-hour episodes and hails from acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband, Prisoners) and veteran producer Sarah Condon (“Bored to Death”). The series will be executive produced by Guzikowski and Condon, and Bridget Carpenter (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. “The Red Road” is Sundance Channel’s second wholly owned original scripted series; its first was the acclaimed “Rectify,” which returns for a second season in 2014

“The Red Road” is a hard-hitting drama that revolves around a sheriff struggling to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring Ramapo Mountains, home of the Ramapo Mountain Indians.  After a terrible tragedy and coverup occurs involving the sheriff's wife, an unholy alliance is forged between the sheriff and a dangerous member of the tribe that will come back to haunt all involved.
