First Look: Cinemax’s ‘Banshee’ From The Creator of ‘True Blood’ [Video]


True Blood creator Alan Ball will be bringing another small town to life in Cinemax’s latest original series Banshee. The series is set in Banshee, Pennsylvania, a small town in the heart of Amish country that gets a new sheriff in the form of an ex-con/master thief (Antony Starr). That may not sound like the most scintillating of settings, but the first teaser for the series reveals the town will be anything but dull. In fact, one character laments, “How can one town have so many scumbags?”

The teaser is short on actual footage, but the little we do get see is action-packed. There is a fast car, an explosion and one decidedly not safe for work scene–all ingredients for a fast-paced, exciting series on par with the brand Cinemax established with its first original series, Strike Back.

Check out the teaser below and let us know in the comments if you will be watching Banshee when debuts in 2013.
