Filming Begins on the Cinemax Series Nemesis
Cinemax announced production is underway on the dramatic series Nemesis starring Melissa George and Adam Rayner. Filming is taking place in Scotland, London and Morocco on the series written and created by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files). Commenting on the series, Spotnitz stated, “I’m incredibly excited about the ambition of this series. It’s got action on a cinematic scale, huge story twists and turns, and intriguing characters who are both emotionally and morally complex. I can’t imagine a better cast, director or production team to bring it all to life.”
The cast also includes Stephen Dillane, Morven Christie, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Lex Shrapnel, Uriel Emil, Patrick Malahide, Stephen Campbell Moore, and Oscar Kennedy.
Nemesis is produced by Kudos Film & Television for BBC One and HBO/CINEMAX in association with Big Light Productions. Spotnitz, Alison Jackson, Jane Featherstone and Stephen Garrett, and Christopher Aird are executive producing. The first two episodes were directed by SJ Clarkson (Heroes, Life On Mars).
George plays Sam, a highly skilled operative for an elite private intelligence firm, who survives an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team. Once she returns to the firm, she performs her secretive duties without knowing who to trust or who wants her dead. Rayner plays Sam’s love interest and colleague at work. The dedicated members of the firm, who operate in the shadows, often confront life and death situations on secret missions and are sometimes unaware of who or what they’re fighting for.
