The Honorable Woman Series Premiere 2014 “The Empty Chair” airs Thursday, July 31st on SundanceTV at 10/9c.

Episode Synopsis: The Honorable Woman Series Premiere 2014 “The Empty Chair” – A drama about an Anglo-Israeli daughter of an assassinated Zionist arms dealer who seeks to legitimize their business begins with the murder of a Palestinian businessman who was closely connected to the family enterprise.

Show Summary: “The Honorable Woman” follows Nessa Stein (Gyllenhaal), whose father was a Zionist arms procurer; as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. Years later, after inheriting her father’s company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, her sudden appointment to the House of Lords, apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom.

Joining Gyllenhaal is a top international cast including: Academy Award nominee Stephen Rea (“The Shadow Line,” “Father & Son,” V for Vendetta); Oscar and Tony Award® nominee Janet McTeer (“Damages,” Albert Nobbs); Lindsay Duncan (“The Hollow Crown,” “White Heat”); Andrew Buchan (“Broadchurch,” “Garrow’s Law,” “The Fixer”); BAFTA Award® nominee Katherine Parkinson (“The IT Crowd,” “Sherlock”); Eve Best (“Nurse Jackie,” The King’s Speech); Lubna Azbal (Incendies, Occupation, Paradise Now, Body of Lies); Tobias Menzies (“Game of Thrones,” “Rome,” “The Shadow Line”); Igal Naor (300: Rise Of An Empire, Green Zone) and more.
