From the Emmy® Award winning Executive Producers of 24 Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa comes Homeland, the double Golden Globe award winning contemporary thriller starring Claire Danes, Damian Lewis, Mandy Patinkin, and David Harewood.

Loosely based on Gideon Raff’s Israeli television series “Prisoners of War”, it centres on an American soldier taken prisoner during the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Left for dead, the soldier (Damian Lewis) miraculously returns to the U.S. after years in captivity. Danes, in her return to series television, plays Carrie Mathison, a driven CIA officer battling her own psychological demons who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to his rescue was a setup, and that this national hero may be connected to an Al-Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil.
