Series Trailer: Jeff Daniels In “American Rust”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

If you liked HBO’s “Mare of Easttown” then get ready to return to that area and genre with this story of a troubled cop in a small economically devastated town on the Pennsylvania Rust Belt in the new Showtime series “American Rust”.

Jeff Daniels plays Del Harris, a complicated and compromised chief of police forced to decide how far he’s willing to go when the son of the woman he loves (Maura Tierney) is accused of murder. It’s a town where people are driven by loyalty, love and desperation – and bad choices come far too easy.

Daniels is coming off numerous TV projects in recent years including Showtime’s “The Comey Rule,” HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Hulu’s “The Looming Tower” and Netflix’s “Godless”.

“American Rust” premieres on Sunday, September 12th.
