Pivot Sets Jan. 29 Premiere for Stanley Tucci Drama ‘Fortitude’

Pivot has set Jan. 29 as the premiere date for “Fortitude,” the cabler’s first scripted drama.

Starring Stanley Tucci as an expert forensic detective, the Arctic-set psychological thriller explores the small town of Fortitude, as mystery and suspicion grows after a brutal and shocking murder.

The entry into edgy scripted drama territory is a big priority for Pivot, the indie cabler owned by Participant Media that launched in 2013.

“Fortitude” is a co-production with Sky Atlantic and was filmed in Iceland and the U.K. The cast also features Michael Gambon, Richard Dormer, Christopher Eccleston, Sofie Gråbøl, Jessica Raine, Luke Treadaway, Nicholas Pinnock, Verónica Echegui and Johnny Harris.
