It looks mighty cold on the set of the new 12-part television series Fortitude which stars SWATH's Johnny Harris. Fortitude is set to premiere Thursday, January 29 at 10pm ET on Pivot TV and also on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
Shot in Iceland which substitutes as the Arctic, Harris plays Ronnie Morgan, a miner with secrets, who moves to build a new life in a town. A show which has the tagline, "It's not only the cold that kills" doesn't too sound good for the future of the locals.
Led by Stanley Tucci (Hunger Games), Fortitude stars Michael Gambon (Harry Potter), Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing) and Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who).
Described as "Twin Peaks meets frozen tundra," Fortitude is set in a small close knit town which has had no violent crimes until a murder sets things in motion.
Fortitude will be shown on Pivot TV which is a relatively new television station launched August 1, 2013. Check here to see where it is being shown in your area.
