Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, searching for two missing federal agents. One of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office, he’s the man who knew missing agent Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino) better than anyone. They were more than partners; their relationship nearly destroyed Ethan’s marriage.

Everything changes when a truck slams into his car…and he wakes up in the Wayward Pines Hospital, with the intense and unpredictable Nurse Pam (Melissa Leo) at his bedside. It soon appears that Pam is more interested in harming than healing. She and Ethan grow into deadly rivals, and her role in the town proves much deeper than anyone realizes.

Among the other residents Ethan meets are the mysterious Dr. Jenkins (Toby Jones), the psychiatrist who treats him at Wayward Pines Hospital; toymaker Harold Ballinger (Reed Diamond); Beverly (Juliette Lewis), a bartender who is as wary of Wayward Pines as he is; and Sheriff Arnold Pope (Terrence Howard), who takes offense at a Secret Service agent showing up on his turf.

Meanwhile, Ethan’s boss, Adam Hassler (Tim Griffin), attempts to update Ethan’s wife, Theresa (Shannyn Sossamon) with the latest news. After arriving in Wayward Pines, Theresa and Ethan enroll their teenage son, Ben (Charlie Tahan), in the town’s only school, where his teacher, Megan Fisher (guest star Hope Davis), provides key information about the town’s origins. But Ethan’s continuing investigation only turns up more and more questions, and each one leads him to the most important question of all: What’s wrong with Wayward Pines?

I’ve seen the first two episode of the series and so far I’m enjoying this twisty mystery. EP Donald De Line and actors Reed Diamond and Tim Griifin had a lot to tell me about what to expect this season.

Wayward Pines premieres Thursday, May 14th at 9/8c on FOX.
