The series, billed as a gritty family drama set against the backdrop of the renegade subculture of Mixed Martial Arts, stars Prison Break alum Frank Grillo as Alvey Kulina, an MMA legend and owner of a Venice, CA-based gym. Jonas plays Nate, Alvey’s prize-fighter son and younger brother to Jay (an unrecognizable Jonathan Tucker). Lauria, meanwhile, portrays a world-class athlete who had (and lost) it all. Kiele Sanchez and Joanna Going round out the cast as Alvey’s current girlfriend and ex-wife, respectively.
Quick warning about the just-released trailer (embedded exclusively above): In addition to partial male nudity, the extended clip features an endless barrage of F-bombs, so it’s probably NSFW.
Kingdom (from Endemol and Detroit 1-8-7‘s Byron Balasco) premieres Oct. 8 at 9/8c on DirecTV.
