Coming in October . Looks interesting. Anyone know if a Canadian channel has picked it up?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeland_(TV_series)

"Homeland is an upcoming American psychological thriller television series created by Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Gideon Raff. The series stars Claire Danes as Carrie Anderson, a CIA operations officer who has come to believe that an American Marine, who was held captive by Al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, was turned by the enemy and now poses a significant risk to national security.

The series will be broadcast in the United States on the cable channel Showtime, and is produced by Fox 21. It is due to premiere on October 2, 2011."

Could be interesting. Showtime had a show a few year back called "Sleeper Cell" that I believe had a similar theme. I never did see it but I remember being interested in it at the time.

Sounds like "The Manchurian Candidate"... unless the Laurence Harvey analogue is fully aware of his mission on behalf of his former captors.
I'll give it a look if/when it shows up here.

hi everyone I came here looking for info b'cuz we watched the first ep on Showtimes website and it looks great. But we dont have Sho on our U.S. TV so we need TMN to show this! I just looked at TMN's website but didn't see it. Has anyone heard anything??

You can see the first ep here:

except maybe not if you're in Canada I've heard before that only people in the US can see that site, sorry. :-(

hey mike10 thats good news. When MC gets something so does TMN right? Or maybe not always? Has anyone heard anything right from TMN? They have other Showtime shows like Dexter so they should have this I hope!

If you look at the Movie Central schedule, Homeland is nowhere to be seen in the month of October, while it debuts Oct 2nd on Showtime, so it's definitely not being shown at the same time as it is in the USA.

Bayguy, thanks for the link to watch the first episode. I forgot about looking there.

I thought it was pretty good.

Claire Danes came off as sufficiently nutty for the role and Damian Lewis was great as usual.

Superchannel is now saying that they have picked it up. It debuts on Nov 1 according to their website.
Awesome. Perhaps a hint that the rumored "Showtime Canada" will come to us via Super Channel. The need it - a lot of their good series will dissapear with the launch of FX Canada.

I am not really surprised by this it seems like move central and TMN have been passing on almost every new showtime series that is not actually owned by the network

Fox is making this show

My *guess* is that Homeland will air at 10:00pm Eastern and again at 2:00am on Super Channel 2. Kidnap & Ransom ends its run on October 25th in that timeslot.

I was getting some of the pvr back log clear and I watched the first 2 eps of Homeland, and I think I will stick with it. The show is more slow paced then say strike back but so far so good. Its also nice to see Mandy Patinkin. Ive missed him ot tv ever since he left criminal minds.
