NEW SERIES HOSTED BY THE EMMY® AND GOLDEN GLOBE® WINNING ACTOR TO PREMIERE SUNDAY, MARCH 22 AT 8PM ET/PT

Where to watch streaming: Hulu Live, iTunes w/Amazon Prime account.

NEW YORK – February 12, 2020 – Smithsonian Channel is set to investigate some of the most shocking and explosive cases of espionage over the last 50 years. SPY WARS WITH DAMIAN LEWIS features the incredible true stories of spy wars fought in the shadows, from the turbulent years of the Cold War to the Iran Hostage Crisis and the discovery of a complex web of sleeper agents living in the U.S. – a major inspiration for the plot of The Americans. Each episode of this new eight-part series sees host Damian Lewis revealing these remarkable tales of the secretive world of government intelligence, surveillance and international conspiracy plots with interviews from the experts and eyewitnesses that lived through them. SPY WARS WITH DAMIAN LEWIS premieres Sunday, March 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.

The series premiere episode, THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD, recounts the story of Oleg Gordievsky – a KGB agent who may have singlehandedly averted World War III. Posted to the Soviet embassy in London by the KGB, Gordievsky would become disenfranchised by the Soviet agenda and, in a shocking move, flipped to become a double agent for British intelligence MI6. What was to follow was a years-long effort by Gordievsky to pass Soviet intelligence to the British, all but preventing a nuclear Armageddon between the Soviet Union and the West.

At Odds Again

“People like us must destroy people like him…”

With the return of Billions just three months away, Showtime has dropped an exciting first teaser trailer for season 5.

And in it, we get our first look at new characters played by Julianna Margulies and Corey Stoll.

Stoll’s character, business titan Michael Prince, appears to be at odds with Axe (Damian Lewis) as he declares, “When I compete, I’m gonna win.”

And it looks like Axe and Chuck’s (Paul Giamatti) alliance may be on even shakier ground than where we left off, as Axe threateningly reminds him, “I want you to remember that when we weren’t friends, the world was a very uncomfortable place.”
