Based on Pines, the best-selling novel by Blake Crouch, and brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense), WAYWARD PINES is an intense mind-bending 10-part event thriller evocative of the classic movie hit Twin Peaks.

Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, searching for two federal agents that have gone missing. Hes also the man who knew missing agent Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino, Entourage) better than anyone else. They were more than just partners; their relationship nearly costs Ethan his marriage.

As the mysteries within the town pile up, Ethan starts to question his own sanity. He is confronted by the mysterious and charismatic Dr Jenkins (Emmy Award nominee Toby Jones, Harry Potter), the psychiatrist who treats him at Wayward Pines Hospital. As he begins to meet some of the local residents, Ethan forms a bond with Bverly (Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Juliette Lewis), a bartender who is as wary of Wayward Pines as he is.

Back home in Seattle, Ethan's wife, Theresa Burke (Shannyn Sossamon, 40 Days and 40 Nights), a former Secret Service Agent trainee, is informed by Ethan's boss, Adam Hassler (Tim Griffin, Prime Suspect), that early testing shows Ethan was never in the car which was recovered on the side of the road outside of Wayward Pines. They're still investigating. But this isn't enough for Theresa. She sets out on her own search for her husband, along with their teenage son, Ben (Charlie Tahan, The Harvest).

In the meantime, Ethan is constantly challenged by the town's die-hard residents. Ethan's continuing investigation only turns up more and more questions, and each of them leads him to the most important question of all: What's wrong with Wayward Pines?

Wayward Pines premieres on Foxtel's FX channel on Thursday, 14 May. Take a look here ...
