"The Red Road" (TV show) is an original gripping, dramatic thriller series on the Sundance Channel that presents two distinct visions of America today as played out through the conflict between two wildly different men.

The series revolves around a local sheriff struggling to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up, just outside of New York City, and the neighboring mountains — home of a federally unrecognized Native American tribe. After a terrible tragedy and cover-up further divides these worlds, an uneasy alliance is forged between the officer and a dangerous member of the tribe. As these two men find themselves increasingly compromised by the other, and the emotional ghosts of their collective pasts begin to emerge, the lives of both quickly unravel, leading to terrible consequences.

The stellar cast includes Martin Henderson ("Devil's Knot," "The Ring," "Smokin' Aces"), Jason Momoa ("Wolves," "Game of Thrones"), Julianne Nicholson ("August: Osage County," "Boardwalk Empire"), Tamara Tunie ("Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit," "Flight"), Annalise Basso ("Oculus," "Standing Up") Allie Gonino ("The Lying Game," "Hidden Away"), Kiowa Gordon ("The Twilight Saga," "Wind Walkers") and Golden Globe nominee Tom Sizemore ("Saving Private Ryan," "Black Hawk Down," "Pearl Harbor," "Heat").

Season 2

After the terrible hit-and-run tragedy and subsequent cover-up in season one, involving Jensen's wife Jean, an unholy alliance was forged between Harold and Phillip Kopus, a dangerous member of the tribe who recently returned home, throwing the community into disarray. New casting includes acclaimed Native American actor Wes Studi ("Road to Paloma," "Hell on Wheels") who plays tribal chief Levi.

"The Red Road" hails from acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski ("Contraband," "Prisoners") and veteran producer Sarah Condon ("Bored to Death"). The series is executive produced by Guzikowski and Condon, and Bridget Carpenter ("Friday Night Lights," "Parenthood") who will serve as both executive producer and showrunner. Award-winning director James Gray ("The Immigrant," "Two Lovers," "We Own the Night") directed the pilot.
