Alex and Howard have created a psychological thriller that holds special relevance in the post 9/11 world. I’m quite confident that its passionate audience will be riveted as the season unfolds and people discover where this story is going.”

The political drama starring Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin became Showtime’s highest-rated drama premiere in eight years, drawing 1.08 million viewers at 10 p.m. in its Oct. 2 Debut.
