You haven't seen Maggie Gyllenhaal like this before.
In The Honorable Woman, Gyllenhaal plays Nessa Stein, the daughter of a Zionist arms procurer who witnessed her own father' assassination. Now she's in charge of his company and has changed the name of the game: Instead of supplying arms, she's been focused on projects designed to reconcile Israelis and Palestinians.
Her appointment to the House of Lords (the upper house of Parliament in the United Kingdom) creates political chaos charted in the eight-episode miniseries filled with espionage and paranoia. Get a taste for the SundanceTV series filled with drama and intrigue in the exclusive trailer above.
The Honorable Woman hails from BAFTA Award winner Hugh Blick and also stars Oscar nominees Stephen Rea and Janet McTeer, Lindsay Duncan, Andrew Buchan, Katherine Parkinson, Eve Best, Lubna Azbal, Tobias Menzies and Igal Naor.
"SundanceTV is proud to welcome The Honorable Woman, an utterly spellbinding drama, to our growing portfolio of innovative miniseries," SundanceTV president Sarah Barnett said in a statement. "These television events take big creative risks, thanks to the stellar talent driving them. The Honorable Woman follows in the footsteps of our award-winning miniseries Top of the Lake. Maggie's remarkable performance blew us all away."
The Honorable Woman premieres Thursday, July 31, at 10 p.m. on SundanceTV.
