"Labyrinth" on The CW is a four-hour event miniseries with a multi-national and award-winning cast, including John Hurt, Sebastian Stan, Jessica Brown-Findlay and Tom Felton.

Filmedon-location in the medieval town of Carcassonne in southwest France and Cape Town, South Africa, the historical miniseries jumps back and forth between modern and medieval France as it follows the lives of two women who are separated by centuries, but united in their search for the Holy Grail.

In Carcassonne, France, in the year 1209, 17-year-old Alaïs (Jessica Brown-Findlay, "Downton Abbey," "Misfits"), is given a mysterious book by her father; a book which he claims contains the secret of the true Grail. Although Alaïs cannot understand the book's strange words and labyrinth symbols, her father instructs her to protect the book no matter what happens to him. Alaïs realizes that her destiny lies in keeping the secret of the labyrinth safe. Eight centuries later, at an archeological dig in the French Pyrenees, a young volunteer named Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby, "The Hour," "Great Expectations") discovers two skeletons in a forgotten cave. Puzzled by the labyrinth symbol carved into the rock, she realizes she's disturbed something that was meant to remain hidden. Somehow, a link to a horrific past — Alice's own past — has been revealed.

In addition to Brown-Findlay and Kirby, the miniseries features a multi-national cast which includes two-time Oscar nominee, three-time BAFTA Award winner and Golden Globe winner John Hurt ("Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"), Sebastian Stan ("Captain America: The First Avenger," "Gossip Girl"), Tom Felton (the "Harry Potter" films, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"), Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globes nominee Janet Suzman ("Nicholas and Alexandra," "Midsomer Murders"), multi-award winner Claudia Gerini ("The Passion of the Christ," "Under the Tuscan Sun"), Katie McGrath ("Merlin," "Red Mist"), Emun Elliott ("Game of Thrones," "Black Death") and Tony Curran ("The Pillars of the Earth," "The Adventures of Tintin").
