DirecTV and AT&T’s Audience Network has given a third season to the anthology series “Full Circle,” Variety has learned.
The new chapter in the show takes on the timely topic of a national presidential race that is rocked by a sex scandal. Jorge Zamacona (“The Last Ship,” “Oz”) will pen the 10 episodes, which will air in 2016. He serves as exec producer along with director Nick Hamm (“Rogue”).
The ensemble cast includes Dougray Scott (“Taken 3”) as Davis Faulkner, a rugged, charismatic and handsome U.S. senator who looks to be a shoe-in as the Democratic candidate for president — but he does prey to certain appetites. Kim Raver (“24”) will play his wife, Jane, a well-off, well-educated Christian who is also an accomplished businesswoman. By no means a doormat, Jane is both calculating and approaching a boiling point with the amoral universe that presidential politics presents.
“‘Full Circle’ is an incredibly thought-provoking series. The level of talent we have each season continues to be noteworthy,” said Christopher Long, AT&T’s senior vice president, original content & production. “A seasoned and talented TV writer like Jorge Zamacona will give the show’s intense dialog a brand new feel this season. His writing will lure viewers into the world of conspiracy and politics — which pairs perfectly as we enter into our presidential election season.”
Momentum TV is the production company behind all three seasons of “Full Circle” with FremantleMedia International handling global distribution of the series. Keith Huff penned season two and Neil LaBute wrote the first season.
