Duane Clark Launches New Reelz Series – “XIII”
Duane Clark directs the action-packed Pilot spinoff of his 4hr miniseries “XIII: The Conspiracy” (NBC/Canal Plus), which was the highest rated original programming in the history of Canal Plus at the time it originally aired. Brought on board to launch the new series, Clark also directs episodes 3 (“Lockdown”) and 5 (“Training Camp”).
XIII doesn’t remember who he is. He doesn’t recognize his face. He doesn’t even know his name. All he has is a tattoo of the Roman Numeral “XIII”…and the skills of a highly trained secret agent. Starring Stuart Townsend (Stuart Townsend – “Chaos Theory”, “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”, “Queen of the Damned”).
XIII was trained by the government to be a covert CIA operative acquiring sophisticated combat and infiltration skills. He was sent on secret missions so dark that no one in Washington knew their actual purpose. When the mission went bad XIII was betrayed by the Government. As part of an elaborate cover-up they changed his face, erased his memory and locked him away deep inside an Eastern European prison.
But XIII escaped, and now he’s searching for answers…uncovering his shadowy past and the international conspiracy that threatens his present. Powerful figures threaten and manipulate him as he gets closer to the mysterious center of a deadly puzzle…where the key to all the intrigue is XIII.
