Full Circle: Miami
Season 1 M-Net Sat (*101) 23:30 Drama
Full Circle’s (2013-current) stories across its 10-episode season link 11 characters’ ties to one another and their ties to a sex scandal that could destroy senator Davis Faulkner’s (Dougray Scott) campaign to be US President. Did he really rape and murder a call-girl? Who can say! “It’s about covering up the scandal and how they can put a lid on anything to make sure that this doesn’t get out and harm his campaign,” says Dougray. “It’s a great examination of morals in politics. Are politics about people and about changing people’s lives, or is it about power, how you get there and whether the ends justify the means?”
The man with the real inside scoop is Christopher Gorham, who plays the Senator’s Secret Service agent Rick D’Andre. “He’s a true-blue patriot who believes in what he’s doing. He believes wholeheartedly in the Secret Service and that’s why he’s so troubled by what he’s seeing. He’s a pot that is ready to boil,” says Chris, whose character will be front and centre for action. Christopher played blind CIA agent Auggie Anderson in Cover Affairs (2010-2015) but we can expect a different performance this time round because “being able to look around and see an attack is a huge part of the Secret Service,” he jokes.
Before the season première in the US in September 2016, Christopher Long from the show’s production company AT&T announced, “Jorge Zamacona’s writing will lure viewers into the world of conspiracy and politics, which pairs perfectly as we enter into our presidential election season.” Viewing the show in 2017, on the other side of that great divide, audiences might be wracking their brains about whether a conspiracy this simple could possibly have an effect on election outcomes…
