Cabler ordered 'Red Road' straight to series in March

Sundance Channel ordered six hourlong episodes of “Red Road” in March, making the drama the second wholly owned original scripted series at the cable net. (“Rectify,” which debuted earlier this year, was the first.)

The Red Road” is exec produced by Guzikowski, Condon and Bridget Carpenter.
