Logan Marshall-Green and Cinemax’s Quarry Are Fall TV Standouts

Logan Marshall-Green has found his defining career moment in Cinemax’s agonizingly gripping new drama Quarry, premiering Friday, Sept. 9 at 10pmET. While you may know him from TNT’s short-lived Dark Blue or 2012’s Prometheus (he played Charlie Halloway), he’s almost unrecognizable in his shaggy ’stache and ’70s backdrop as Mac Conway, a scandalized Vietnam vet who returns to his unwelcoming Memphis hometown with few opportunities. Named one of Channel Guide Magazine’s Top 9 new series this fall, Quarry is a thought-provoking gut punch that just doesn’t stop. The 8-episode season is based on Max Allan Collins’ Quarry novels that follow […]

Andre Holland on The Knick: “I feel a really deep and personal connection with Algernon”

Andre Holland knew he was meant to play Dr. Algernon Edwards in the absorbing Cinemax drama The Knick from the moment the script landed in his hands. The problem? Holland was vacationing in Italy and had minutes to submit an audition tape if he wanted the part. So, much like his put-upon, resourceful character, Holland made magic with what he had. “My agents were like, ‘The producers are moving very fast with this and we need you to get something on tape right away!’”Holland laughs. “So I found a British couple who were also vacationing at the time and talked […]

Clive Owen on The Knick: “I knew it was something I had to do”

Steven Soderbergh’s latest foray into television, The Knick, is now airing Friday nights at 10/9CT on Cinemax.

The Knick: Cinemax presents a lively look at race, sex and medicine in 1900s New York

At the turn of the 20th century, New York City’s Knickerbocker Hospital was deeply in flux. As the wealthy patrons who once filled its beds — and its bank account — fled its urban locale for loftier boroughs, replaced by a teeming brew of racial and cultural disparities, the doctors and nurses at the “The Knick” struggled to stay atop the city’s burgeoning medical community. This is the world from which director Steven Soderbergh’s engrossing new fact-meets-fiction Cinemax series The Knick, which premieres Friday, emerges. Created by the veteran writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, the 10-episode drama sprung […]
