TV show description:
A psychological thriller, this TV show is based on the best-selling series of books by Blake Crouch.
Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines searching for two missing federal agents. One of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office, Burke is the man who knew missing agent Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino) better than anyone. They were more than partners — their relationship nearly destroyed Ethan’s marriage.
Everything changes when a truck slams into his car… and he wakes up in the Wayward Pines Hospital. The intense and unpredictable Nurse Pam (Melissa Leo) is at his bedside. It soon appears that Pam is more interested in harming than healing however. She and Ethan soon grow into deadly rivals, and her role in the town proves much deeper than anyone realizes.
Among the other residents Ethan meets are the mysterious Doctor Jenkins (Toby Jones), the psychiatrist who treats him at Wayward Pines Hospital; toymaker Harold Ballinger (Reed Diamond); Beverly (Juliette Lewis), a bartender who is as wary of Wayward Pines as he is; and Sheriff Arnold Pope (Terrence Howard), who takes offense at a Secret Service agent showing up on his turf.
Meanwhile, Ethan’s boss, Adam Hassler (Tim Griffin), attempts to update Ethan’s wife, Theresa Burke (Shannyn Sossamon) with the latest news. After arriving in Wayward Pines, Theresa and Ethan enroll their teenage son, Ben (Charlie Tahan), in the town’s only school. His teacher, Megan Fisher (Hope Davis), provides key information about the town’s origins.
Ethan’s continuing investigation only turns up more and more questions, and each one leads him to the most important question of all: What’s wrong with Wayward Pines?
