"Banshee" (TV show) is an action series on Cinemax starring Antony Starr as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he continues his criminal activities, even as he's hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier.

The series also stars Ivana Milicevic ("Charlie's Angels," "Mind of the Married Man") as Carrie Hopewell, Hood's former partner in crime, who now lives in Banshee under an assumed identity with her new family, who know nothing of her past; Ulrich Thomsen ("The Celebration") as Proctor, an intimidating, wealthy local businessman who believes he is above the law; Frankie Faison ("The Good Wife," "The Wire") as Sugar Bates, a wise, powerful former boxer and ex-con who now owns the local watering hole; Rus Blackwell ("Burn Notice," "Recount") as Gulf War hero Gordon Hopewell, Banshee's district attorney, who is married to Carrie; Ryann Shane ("Blue Bloods") as Deva Hopewell, Carrie and Gordon's rebellious daughter; and Ben Cross ("Star Trek," "Ben Hur") as Mr. Rabbit, a ruthless Ukrainian gangster who has been hunting Lucas and Carrie, his former top thieves, for 15 years.

Other cast regulars include Demetrius Grosse ("Justified") as Emmett Yawners, a deputy in the Banshee sheriff department; Trieste Kelly Dunn ("Brothers and Sisters") as Siobhan Kelly, a spitfire female deputy in the sheriff's department; Matt Servitto ("The Sopranos") as Brock Lotus, the longest-serving deputy in the Banshee sheriff department, who is threatened by Hood's new role as sheriff; Lili Simmons ("Fat Kid Rules the World") as Rebecca Bowman, a local Amish girl in her early 20s who lives a devout life by day, but is a rebellious, sexually adventurous party girl by night; Hoon Lee ("Premium Rush") as Job, a dangerous transvestite computer hacker who assists Lucas in his criminal enterprises; and Daniel Ross Owens ("Prison Break") as Dan Kendall, Banshee's young, idealistic mayor.

Scripts were conceived and written by Tropper and Schickler. The directors are Yaitanes (Emmy winner for "House M.D."), S.J. Clarkson ("EastEnders," "Dexter," Cinemax's "Hunted"), Ole Madsen ("Edderkoppen," "Flame and Citron"), Dean White ("Once Upon a Time") and Miguel Sapochnik ("Repo Men," "House M.D.").

Season 3

New cast regulars include Langley Kirkwood ("Black Sails") as Col. Douglas Stowe, a duplicitous Marine leader, and Afton Williamson ("Nashville") as Alison Medding, Banshee's new assistant district attorney.

New guest stars include Denis O'Hare ("True Blood"; "American Horror Story") as FBI Special Agent Robert Phillips, looking to bring Lucas to justice; Chaske Spencer ("Twilight: New Moon") as Billy Raven, a Kinaho tribe member hired as a new deputy; Tom Pelphrey as Kurt Bunker, a reformed skinhead who applies for the job of deputy at the Banshee sheriff's department; and Meaghan Rath as Aimee King, the last remaining deputy at the corruption-riddled Kinaho Reservation police department.

Season 4

New to the cast are Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") as Veronica Dawson, a tough, sexy and shockingly reckless FBI profiler with no shortage of personal demons, who joins forces with Lucas; Ana Ayora ("The Big Wedding") as Nina Cruz, a Banshee deputy working as an inside plant for Proctor; and Casey LaBow ("The Twilight Saga; Breaking Dawn, Parts 1 and 2") as Maggie, wife of a local Aryan Brotherhood leader, who desperately wants a better life for herself and her son.

The series is executive produced by Alan Ball ("True Blood" and "Six Feet Under"), Greg Yaitanes ("House," "Lost"), Peter Macdissi ("Towelhead," HBO's "Six Feet Under"), Jonathan Tropper (author of the New York Times bestseller "This Is Where I Leave You") and David Schickler (author of "Kissing in Manhattan" and "Sweet and Vicious").
