Get yourself a gander at the upcoming series 'Rectify' from Ray McKinnon

  • Ray McKinnon's new series "Rectify," starring Aden Young, premieres April 22 on Sundance Channel.

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive preview of the new series "Rectify," created by Ray McKinnon. The six-episode series kicks off April 22 with a two-hour premiere on the Sundance Channel.

The show is about Daniel Holden, who was released after serving 19 years on death row for the rape and murder of his girlfriend. DNA evidence exonerates him, but the residents of his small hometown aren't so sure. McKinnon said he was inspired by the real-life release of inmates who said they wanted a steak dinner and a beer when they got out. But McKinnon wondered what the rest of that first day out — and all the days that followed that one — might be like.

Producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also responsible for the near universally hailed AMC series "Breaking Bad." Johnson told EW however that the shows won't have much in common beyond the fact that "if you were going to go in and pitch either one of those to a studio executive at a movie studio, you’d probably get thrown out the door.”

The shows looks hella intriguing and Aden Young, who plays Holden, has that deeply haunted man-on-the-edge vibe down heavy. Note: former Times columnist Graham Gordy is one of the writers on the show and also plays Pastor Beau.
