SHOWTIME made history this year at the Primetime Emmy Awards, with HOMELAND receiving the network’s first-ever series win. HOMELAND was tied for the most wins of any program this year with six Emmys, and was the first show in almost 20 years to win Emmy Awards for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor and Lead Actress in the same year.
HOMELAND is the Golden Globe® and Emmy award-winning drama series that tells the story of Carrie Mathison (Golden Globe and Emmy winner Claire Danes), a CIA officer dealing with bi-polar disorder, who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to the rescue of Nicholas Brody (Emmy winner Damian Lewis), a U.S. soldier who had been missing and presumed dead for eight years, was a setup and may be connected to an Al-Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil. The series also stars Morena Baccarin, David Harewood, Diego Klattenhoff, David Marciano, Navid Negahban, Jamey Sheridan, Morgan Saylor, Jackson Pace and Mandy Patinkin. HOMELAND is based on the original Israeli series “Prisoners of War,” by Gideon Raff, developed for American television by Howard Gordon & Alex Gansa. Along with Gordon, Gansa and Raff, the executive producers for season two are Michael Cuesta, Alex Cary, Chip Johannessen, Henry Bromell, Meredith Stiehm, Avi Nir and Ran Telem. The series is produced by FOX 21.
