What if there was another you?
Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons) is a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organisation safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross… where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world.
An espionage series about the mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of every day existence, Counterpart explores themes of identity, fate and lost love, posing the eternal question, “what if our lives could have been different?”
In addition to Academy Award® winner Simmons, the cast also includes Olivia Williams as Howard’s wife; Harry Lloyd as the director of Howard’s agency, Nicholas Pinnoch as an aggressive watchdog and Nazanin Boniadi as an enigmatic young woman of mysterious origin.
