“Make no mistake about it. This is a war between the people of this country and those who seek to control us.”
“Our banks and government, they have all conspired to rip off the very people who grow our food and keep our nation strong.”
“Those who side with wealth and power must be recognized for who they are: the enemy.”
Quotes from USA’s trailer for Damnation sum up the period drama exploring the battle between the rich and the poor in what the network calls “an epic saga about the secret history of the 1930s American heartland.”
The series stars Seth Davenport as Killian Scott, a man masquerading as a small town Iowa preacher in the hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo. Focused on his mission, he is unaware that an industrialist tycoon has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creeley Turner (Logan Marshall-Green, Quarry) to stop the uprising by any means necessary.
But unknown to those around them, these two men already share a secret bloody past.
Damnation is from executive producers Tony Tost (Longmire), James Mangold (Logan), Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones) and Daniel Rappaport (Office Space) on behalf of Entertainment 360.
Damnation premieres November 7 on USA.
