Pivot’s first scripted drama, “Fortitude,” starring Stanley Tucci, premieres tonight.
The Arctic-set thriller centers on the small town of Fortitude, which is brutally disrupted after a shocking murder. Tucci stars as a forensic detective who explores the eerie setting where higher-than-usual temperatures cause the ice to melt, exposing dark secrets that have long been frozen under the ground.
Michael Gambon, Richard Dormer, Christopher Eccleston, Sofie Gråbøl, Jessica Raine, Luke Treadaway, Nicholas Pinnock, Verónica Echegui and Johnny Harris round out the cast.
The exclusive sneak peek (above), released by Variety, sees a heated discussion between Eccleston’s Professor Stoddart and Governor Odegard, played by Gråbøl.
