About the Show
Nothing is what it seems, everything is questioned, and clues hide in plain sight in the AMC original drama series Rubicon.
Inspired by the suspenseful and high-stakes political whodunits of the 1970s -- from The Parallax View to All The President's Men -- Rubicon is a modern-day conspiracy thriller that taps into the collective paranoia of a post-9/11 era. Set at the New York City-based American Policy Institute (API), a federal intelligence agency, Rubicon follows Will Travers, a beleaguered and brilliant API analyst who, after being faced with a shocking tragedy, begins to uncover clues that could point to a complex and sinister consipiracy.
Executive produced by Henry Bromell (Homicide: Life on the Street, Chicago Hope, Brotherhood), Rubicon stars James Badge Dale (The Pacific, The Departed) as Will Travers; Jessica Collins (The Nine, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as Maggie Young; Dallas Roberts (Walk the Line, Flicka, The L Word) as Miles Fiedler; Christopher Evan Welch (Vicky Christina Barcelona) as Grant Test; and Lauren Hodges (Law & Order) as Tanya MacGaffin, with Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket, Natural Born Killers) as Kale Ingram and Academy Award® nominee Miranda Richardson (Sleepy Hollow, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) as Katherine Rhumor. Recurring guest stars include Roger Robinson (Brother to Brother) as Ed Bancroft and Michael Cristofer (The Shadow Box) as Truxton Spangler.
Greenlit to a full series order in June 2009, Rubicon is AMC's third original series. The one-hour, 13-episode weekly series is produced by Warner Horizon Television.
