"Purity" (TV show) on Showtime is a drama series, starring and executive produced by internationally-acclaimed actor Daniel Craig, that is based on the novel of the same name from best-selling author Jonathan Franzen.

The series is a morally complex story of youthful idealism, extreme loyalty and cold-blooded murder. Jonathan Franzen's intricately plotted novel is populated by characters both hungry for the truth and desperate to hide it. From STASI offspring to Oakland anarchists, Franzen tracks his characters' landscapes as varied as East Berlin, the Bolivian jungle, East Harlem walk-ups, and the California Redwoods. The story is at once supremely ambitious in scope and intensely intimate in its treatment of character — a decades-spanning tragicomedy that builds to a contemporary climax.

Todd Field ("Little Children," "In the Bedroom") writes, directs and executive produces, along with executive producers Daniel Craig, Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, David Hare and Jonathan Franzen. Hare and Franzen also serve as writers on the series. Field directs every episode.
