First Look: Claire Danes Returns to TV in Showtime's Homeland

Here’s your first look at scenes from Showtime’s upcoming conspiracy thriller Homeland, produced by 24 vet Howard Gordon and starring Claire Danes.

Showtime Picks Up Kristen Bell Comedy, Claire Danes Thriller

The drama, which was just picked up to series, revolves around a CIA officer (played by Danes) who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to the rescue of a presumed-dead U.S. soldier (Damian Lewis) was a setup, and may be connected to an Al Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil. A bearded Mandy Patinkin also stars as a veteran CIA Division Chief who serves as a mentor to Danes’ character.

    Can’t wait!

  2. DL says:

    Looks great! Love Claire Danes, love Damian Lewis, and I love Mandy Patinkin! Hopefully Mandy will decide to stick with this show. ;)

  3. Sean says:

    Any idea as to when this might premiere?

  4. TLG says:

    Mandy Patinkin? Really?? Good actor, bad precedent of bailing out on his shows. Hope Showtime stuck a “In for the Long Haul” clause in his contract…

  5. Mikaylah says:

    I loved Damian Lewis in Life, and I love Claire Danes. Mandy Patinkin is a good actor, even if, as some have commented, he isn’t know for sticking with his shows. Looking forward to it!

  6. Daisy says:

    This looks great, cannot wait to see more.

  7. Melody says:

    Looks good, too bad I don’t have Showtime.

  8. Marty says:

    Wow. This looks good!

  9. Lachlen says:

    Need more context. Why would a soldier flip sides? Doesn’t make sense.

    • Mitch says:

      Umm… perhaps part of the reason to watch the show? One of the mysteries that unfold along the way?

      God, it’s a preview/teaser/trailer, not a summary. It’s point is to get you to think about things like that which will make you want to watch the show.

  10. Bob says:

    There’s a good chance Mandy will stick around since it’s on Showtime and not a broadcast network. He didn’t bail on “Dead Like Me”, but it was only around for two seasons, which seems to be his maximum commitment on the other shows.

  11. Gregory says:

    This looks smart and the casting looks appealing as well. I can only wonder, though, at the plot. It sounds suspiciously like “Manchurian Candidate.”
