Damian Lewis’s personal assistant, Michael, sent us a small update. No broadcast date to report for Stolen but to look out for Damian in the Metro, The Times, the Daily Mail and other papers. Regarding Man is Wolf to Man, he thinks “this is all dependent on Homeland. There are a few other things Damian is working on and in discussions with, this will all be confirmed once Homeland is decided on.”
- In an interview with TV Squad Homeland producer Howard Gordon says that the tentative broadcast date for Homeland is September.
On to ‘Homeland,’ with Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. Would you describe it as more of a psychological thriller than an action thriller?
Yeah, very much so … ’24’ always had a kind of heightened reality. I think it had a nice emotional integrity, but always in a heightened kind of context. This really does feel like it’s happening in the real world, because it has that kind of slow, observational, very human storyline. So it is more of a psychological thriller. I think in some ways, it’s taking some of the same material, obviously, and looking at it in an entirely different way.
You’re working with Showtime for ‘Homeland.’ How is that experience different from working with a network, the things that you can do, the pace that you can employ to tell the story?
Showtime feels to me like the difference between … a major studio movie and independent film. There’s a kind of fearlessness there, to be nuanced and to be slow … to take your time, I should say. Slow is not a good word. But, just the medium itself. The fact that there are no commercial breaks changes the rhythm and changes the whole experience. And of course, the latitude you have in terms of material.
What’s the timeframe for it? Is there a planned premiere date?
The idea would be in September. Nothing is written in stone. We have to finish this (pilot) first, and they have to like it, but I think it would come out next September.
