Epix Announces Premiere Dates for 'Berlin Station' and 'Graves'

During its first ever presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, Epix announced October premiere dates for its first two original scripted series - drama Berlin Station and comedy Graves.

The 10-episode first seasons of both Berlin Station and Graves will premiere on Sunday, October 16 at 9/8c. and 10/9c., respectively.

Berlin Station follows Daniel Miller, a newly anointed case officer who has arrived at the CIA foreign station in Berlin, Germany with a clandestine mission: to uncover the source of a leak who has supplied information to a now-famous whistleblower named "Thomas Shaw." Guided by jaded veteran Hector DeJean, Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field agent - agent-running, deception, the dangers and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital's hall of mirrors and uncovers the threads of a conspiracy that leads back to Washington, Daniel wonders: Can anyone ever be the same after a posting to Berlin?

The drama stars Richard Armitage, Richard Jenkins, Rhys Ifans, Michelle Forbes, Tamlyn Tomita, Leland Orser, Bernhard Schütz, Rameez Siddiqui, April Grace and Richard Dillane.

Olen Steinhauer created the drama. He executive produces with Michael Roskam and Brad Winters. Paramount Television and Anonymous Content produce.

Graves centers on former President Richard Graves who, twenty years after his presidency, has the epiphany that his policies have damaged the country for decades. And so, with his young assistant, he goes on a Don Quixote-like journey to right his administration's wrongs just as his wife decides to follow her own political ambitions.

The comedy stars Nick Nolte, Sela Ward, Skylar Astin, Chris Lowell, Angelica Maria, Heléne Yorke, Callie Hernandez, Nia Vardalos and Ernie Hudson.

Joshua Michael Stern created the comedy. He executive produces with Greg Shapiro, Keith Eisner and Eric Weinberg. Lionsgate Television produces.
