Taking a Look at the DirecTV New Series Full Circle

By  | 

Award-winning screenwriter Neil LaBute will be making his television debut with the new DirecTV only series Full Circle that will air on October 9 with back-to-back episodes at 9/8c and 9:30/8:30c.

The 10-episode series will examine the human condition and relationships through a series of conversations between 11 people whose lives, unbeknownst to them, are intertwined.

The cast of Full Circle includes Tom Felton (from the Harry Potter franchise films), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), David Boreanaz (Bones), Keke Palmer (Joyful Noise), Devon Gearhart (The Wait), Billy Campbell (The Killing), Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Noah Silver (The Borgias), Ally Sheedy (The Breakfast Club), Cheyenne Jackson (Glee) and Robin Weigert (Sons of Anarchy).

Full Circle will see the conversations pass from one episode to the next, including Tim (Felton), an exchange student from England and his love interest Bridgette (Kelly); Bridgette’s husband Stanley (McMahon), a charismatic and intense entertainment lawyer; Stanley’s client Jace (Boreanaz), a famous comic known for his outlandish behavior; Chan’dra (Palmer), whose life was irrevocably altered as a result of a joke that Jace took too far; Cliff (Gearhart), a classmate Chan’dra secretly has a crush on; Cliff’s father Trent (Campbell) and his wife Trisha (Walsh); Peter (Jackson), an aspiring singer who intrudes on a special night between Trent and Trisha; Robbie (Silver), Trisha’s student who purports an unusual connection to his teacher, and his mother Celeste (Sheedy), with whom he shares an unnerving bond. The final episode brings the characters together, with the unexpected addition of one (Weigert), for an explosive ending that is sure to change all of these characters lives irreparably.
