“Restless”: Sundance Channel miniseries debuts Dec. 7 and 14
Sundance Channel will premiere the first segment of its two-part World War II female espionage miniseries “Restless” on the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack Dec. 7, with the conclusion debuting Dec. 14, both airing at 8 p.m..
Based on the novel by acclaimed British novelist William Boyd, “Restless” centers on the story of Ruth Gilmartin (Michelle Dockery, “Downton Abbey”) discovering that her mother Sally (Charlotte Rampling, “Melancholia”) was recruited as a spy during World War II.
The miniseries was filmed in South Africa and the U.K. and also stars Rufus Sewell (“Pillars of the Earth”), Michael Gambon (“Luck”) and Hayley Atwell (“Captain America”) as the young Sally, according to a news release.
“Restless” was produced by Emmy Award winner Hilary Bevan Jones (“State of Play,” “The Girl in the Cafe”) through her company Endor Productions and was directed by Edward Hall with a teleplay written by Boyd.
A summary of the miniseries, provided by Sundance Channel, is as follows:
“Restless” asks the question: What becomes of your life when everything you thought was solid and certain about it turns out to be a fantastically complicated lie?
This is the quandary faced by Ruth Gilmartin (Michelle Dockery) when, one day in 1976, her mother Sally (Charlotte Rampling) suddenly reveals that she has been living a double life.
