Don't miss AiF member Damon Herriman in Cinemax's Original Series Quarry, premiering September 9 at 10pm.
Unfolding over eight episodes, Quarry is the story of Mac Conway, a Marine who returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. As he struggles to cope with his experiences at war, Conway is drawn into a network of killing and corruption that spans the length of the Mississippi River.
The one-hour drama also stars Logan Marshall-Green, Jodi Balfour, Peter Mullan and Nikki Amuka-Bird.
Based on the novels of Max Allan Collins, the show is directed and executive produced by Greg Yaitanes, along with executive producer Steve Golin. Created and executive produced by Graham Gordy & Michael D. Fuller.
On Herriman, Huffington Post contributor Andrew Cristi wrote: This is an utter guarantee- by this time next year, Damon Herriman will at least be nominated [for an Emmy] for his performance on Cinemax’s new drama, Quarry- and if he’s not, there’s simply no justice in the world. Without exaggeration, Herriman is giving one of the best performances that television has probably ever seen, in a role so beautifully colorful and crafted that it seems like it was it was quite literally breathed to life from the dreams of every true actor- and yet, once audiences see Herriman in the part, they will never be able to imagine anyone else play it as he makes the role completely his own.
