Laurent Puons, CEO of the 57th Monte-Carlo Television Festival (16th – 20th June) announced today that Sony Pictures Television Networks’ much anticipated new thriller series Absentia, starring Stana Katic (Castle) will open this year’s event.

Representing a global premiere, this exclusive screening of the first episode of Absentia will follow the star-studded Opening Ceremony, during which H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Festival’s Honorary President, will officially open the 57th edition of the Festival. Prior to the event, members of Absentia’s cast and crew will join a host of acting and production talent from around the world on the red carpet. A Sony Pictures Television Networks Original Series produced by Masha Productions, ten-part drama Absentia is set to make its broadcast debut this fall on select Sony networks, including AXN. Sony Pictures Television is handling distribution for the show worldwide.

Laurent Puons, CEO of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, said, «I’m thrilled to announce that our 57th edition will open with the global premiere of this exceptional series. Sony Pictures Television Networks and AXN are renowned throughout the world for delivering high-profile, buzzworthy drama. With its acclaimed cast and crew, alongside its intriguing premise, I’m certain Absentia will prove a huge hit with international audiences – and I’m delighted to host its worldwide debut as part of our extensive line-up of prestigious events»

Absentia stars Stana Katic (Castle), Patrick Heusinger (Jack Reacher), Angel Bonanni (Shots Fired), Neil Jackson (Sleepy Hollow), Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey), Bruno Bichir (Narcos), Ralph Ineson (The Witch) and Richard Brake (Game of Thrones). While hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers, FBI agent Emily Byrne (Katic) disappears without a trace and is declared dead. Six years later, she is found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive, with no memory of what happened to her while she was in captivity. Returning home to learn that her husband (Heusinger) has remarried and her son is being raised by another woman, Emily soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.

Executive Producer and Director of Absentia is Oded Ruskin (False Flag), alongside Executive Producers Maria Feldman (False Flag, Fauda), Stana Katic, Matt Cirulnick and Julie Glucksman. The series is based on a pilot script originally written by Gaia Violo.

Stana Katic Poised To Star In Thriller Drama Series ‘Absentia’ For Sony’s AXN

This is some pretty exciting news!! Not only will we get Stana back on our screens, but the plot itself sounds very interesting!

Stana Katic is returning to television. The former Castle star is in final negotiations to play the lead in Absentia, a 10-episode straight-to-series crime thriller greenlighted by Sony Pictures Television Networks’ AXN.

Produced by Tel Aviv-based Masha Productions, the series will begin filming early next year for a 2017 premiere on AXN’s worldwide channels. Sony Pictures Television will handle distribution in the U.S., where the show is yet to be shopped, and outside of AXN’s channel footprint.

Written/executive produced by Matt Cirulnick (South Beach), based on a pilot script originally written by Gaia Violo, Absentia centers on an FBI agent, to be played by Katic. While hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers, the FBI agent disappears without a trace and is declared dead. Six years later, she is found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive and with no memory of the years she was missing. Returning home to learn her husband has remarried and her son is being raised by another woman, she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.

Oded Ruskin, known for the hit Israeli series False Flag, will direct all ten episodes of the series. Riskin also will produce with Masha TV’s Maria Feldman (Homeland, False Flag), Ruskin and Julie Glucksman.

Absentia is the perfect blend of crime thriller and character-driven drama for the AXN audience,” said Marie Jacobson, EVP, Programming and Production at Sony Pictures TV Networks. “With a strong lead, Matt’s writing, and Oded’s direction, we have a signature series packed with suspense, surprise and emotional turns that feels distinctly AXN, and has great global potential,” said Jacobson.

Sony’s AXN networks broadcast in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe, with a programming slate focused on action, crime and mystery.  The networks’ most recent drama series commissions include Hannibal, starring Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy, and Crossing Lines, with Donald Sutherland and Goran Visnjic.

Katic is coming off an eight-season stint as fan-favorite Kate Beckett on ABC’s Castle, which earned her three People’s Choice Awards. Her most recent feature, The Rendezvous, just had a special screening at the Mill Valley Festival. Katic, who also produces through her own company, Sine Timore Films, is repped by Gersh and Principal Entertainment LA.
