An espionage thriller with a metaphysical twist, information pills  Counterpart tells the story of Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons), a lowly cog in a bureaucratic agency who is turning the last corner of a life filled with regret, when he discovers the agency he works for is guarding a secret: a crossing to a parallel dimension. Through Howard and his “Counterpart” on the other side, Prime, the show will navigate themes of identity, idealism, what ifs, and lost love.

Coming off an Oscar win for Whiplash, J.K. Simmons will topline Counterpart, a sci-fi thriller drama series for Starz from MRC, Anonymous Content and Gilbert Films. It was created and written by Justin Marks, writer of the Disney Jungle Book movie, with Oscar-nominated Imitation Game helmer Morten Tyldum set to direct the first two episodes.
