Sony Pictures Entertainment premieres its highly-anticipated drama series, Counterpart, followed

by a panel discussion with the cast and producer of the show.

In Counterpart, Academy Award Winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, the Spider-Man franchise)

plays Howard Silk, a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based UN spy agency.

When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel

dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross… where the only

man he can trust is “Prime” (also played by J.K. Simmons), his near-identical counterpart from this

parallel world.

The series also stars Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, The Halcyon) as Emily Burton Silk; Harry

Lloyd (The Theory of Everything) as Peter Quayle; Nazanin Boniadi (Homeland) as Clare; Nicholas

Pinnock (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Ian Shaw; Sara Serraiocco (Salvo, Cloro) as

Baldwin and Ulrich Thomsen (The Blacklist, Banshee) as Aldrich.

Director Morten Tyldum, best known for his Oscar®-nominated work on The Imitation Game,

directed the first episode.

From MRC, Anonymous Content and Gilbert Films, Counterpart is created and written by Justin

Marks (The Jungle Book) and executive produced by Tyldum and Marks with Amy Berg (Da Vinci’s

Demons), Gary Gilbert (La La Land) with Gilbert Films, Jordan Horowitz (La La Land), Keith

Redmon (The Revenant) and Bard Dorros (Spotlight) with Anonymous Content. Counterpart is

distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
