WAYWARD PINES. The highly anticipated event series, based on the best-selling novels from Blake Crouch and brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan will have its WORLD PREMIERE next year Thursday May 14 on Foxtel's FX channel.

Australians will see the series before anyone else due timezones. Following the Australian premiere, the series will then roll out simultaneously in more than 125 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America making it the world's largest day-and-date launch for a scripted series ever.

WAYWARD PINES is an intense, mind-bending 10-episode thriller starring Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon as a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines.

Every step closer to the truth makes him question if he will ever get out of Wayward Pines alive. The all-star cast also includes Academy and Emmy Award winner Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”), Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard (“Crash,” “Hustle & Flow”), Carla Gugino (“Entourage”), Shannyn Sossamon (“How to Make It in America”), Toby Jones (the “Harry Potter” franchise) and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Juliette Lewis (“Cape Fear”).

WAYWARD PINES is a production of FX Productions. The series was developed for television by Hodge (“The Playboy Club,” “Runaway”) and executive-produced by De Line (“Green Lantern,” “The Italian Job”), Rajan (“Devil”), Hodge and Shyamalan.
