Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) tries to unravel the mysteries of a bizarre town in the new trailer for Wayward Pines, a Fox event series that debuts Thursday, May 14 at 9 PM ET on Fox. Based on the novel "Pines" by Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines was created by Chad Hodge (The Playboy Club), with M. Night Shyamalan directing the pilot and serving as an executive producer alongside Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan.
Imagine the perfect American town... beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets. Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communication with the outside world. You think you're going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines. Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, searching for two missing federal agents. One of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office, he's the man who knew missing agent Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino) better than anyone. They were more than partners; their relationship nearly destroyed Ethan's marriage.
Everything changes when a truck slams into his car...and he wakes up in the Wayward Pines Hospital, with the intense and unpredictable Nurse Pam (Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Melissa Leo) at his bedside. It soon appears that Pam is more interested in harming than healing. She and Ethan grow into deadly rivals, and her role in the town proves much deeper than anyone realizes. Terrence Howard, Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossamon, Reed Diamond, Tim Griffin, Charlie Tahan and Juliette Lewis round out the cast. Take a look at the trailer and one-sheet before this thrilling new series debuts this summer.
