Hightown Premiere Date and Official Key Art Revealed

-

Starz today announced the Hightown premiere date and revealed the official key art for the new eight-episode STARZ Original series. The series will premiere on Sunday, May 17th at 8 PM ET/PT on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada and will also air day and date on the STARZPLAY international streaming service across Europe and Latin America.

Hightown is set on iconic Cape Cod, and follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, intertwined with an unfolding murder investigation. Jackie Quiñones (Monica Raymund, Chicago Fire, The Good Wife), a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, has her free-wheeling life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach – another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic.

As a result of this trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward becoming sober— until she becomes convinced that it’s up to her to solve the murder. Now at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale, Only the Brave), an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, Jackie starts to spiral. And she’s not alone. Ray, too, spins out of control; losing himself in the investigation.

The lives of everyone connected to this murder crash and converge, reminding us just how complicated – and deadly – our addictions can be.

Riley Voelkel (Roswell, New Mexico, The Originals), Shane Harper (Code Black, Happyland), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break, Deception), Atkins Estimond (The Resident, Lodge 49) and Dohn Norwood (Mindhunter, The Sinner) also star.

Hightown is created and executive produced by Rebecca Cutter (Gotham) with Gary Lennon (Power, Euphoria) executive producing with Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Carribbean franchise, Top Gun: Maverick, The Amazing Race), Jonathan Littman (Lucifer, The Amazing Race, CSI franchise) and KristieAnne Reed (Lucifer, L.A.’s Finest) from Jerry Bruckheimer TV; Ellen H. Schwartz also serves as executive producer.

Oscar-nominated cinematographer Rachel Morrison (Black Panther, Fruitvale Station) directed the first two episodes of the series.

Hightown was an Official Selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, though the festival was canceled this year due to current events.
