“Each diamond has lived a life. Persevered. Suffered…Each one tells us a story, and that story, no matter how many times it’s told, can outlive us all.”
Audience Network has released a first look at their forthcoming Antoine Fuqua drama, “ICE,” and I’m totally here for it.
Here’s the scoop on the new series via Deadline:
The 10-episode series, from Fuqua’s Fuqua Films and Entertainment One, was named after the slang word for diamonds. Written/exec produced by Robert Munic, it follows the Green family as they plunge into the underbelly of the L.A. diamond trade. Cam Gigandet, Jeremy Sisto, Ray Winstone, Judith Shekoni, Ella Thomas, Chloe East, Raymond J. Barry and Donald Sutherland star.
Jake (Gigandet) and Freddy (Sisto) are half-brothers brought together by their father Isaac (Barry), the patriarch behind G&G Diamonds and their uncle Cam (Winstone). After wildcard Freddy kills a prominent diamond dealer, his brother Jake must bail him out and save the family business from a crime lord of the Los Angeles Diamond trade (Shekoni). Jake must endure all of this while maneuvering amongst jewelry thugs, blood diamond deals, false certificates, the Feds, and Pieter Van De Bruin (Sutherland), a ruthless Afrikaner diamond merchant who now heads up an Antwerp-based diamond cartel.
“ICE” premieres on Audience Network on Wednesday, November 16th only on Audience. (DirectTV channel 239 or AT&T U-verse channel 1114)
