Armitage, Forbes Head To “Berlin Station”

Richard Armitage (“Hannibal,” “The Hobbit”) and Michelle Forbes (“The Killing,” “True Blood”) have joined the cast of the ten-part spy drama “Berlin Station” at Epix. Richard Jenkins and Rhys Ifans also star.

Armitage plays a cerebral CIA analyst who has become a case officer who has just arrived at the agency’s foreign station in Berlin. He’s on a secret mission to find who leaked information to a now-famous whistleblower.

As he learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field agent, he uncovers the threads of a conspiracy. Forbes plays a no-nonsense administrator who serves as a Berlin Station Section Head.

Richard Jenkins plays Steven Frost, a veteran of the Cold War and Berlin station chief, while Ifans plays a darkly charming case offer who mentors the analyst.

Michael Roskam will direct the first two episodes. Spy novelist Olen Steinhauer penned the premiere and will write and executive produce the series while Brad Winters (“The Americans”) is set as show runner.
