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…
