EPIX is channeling Jason Bourne with its first drama, CIA spy series Berlin Station, and ET has the exclusive (and thrilling) new trailer and first scene from the upcoming show.
British star Richard Armitage (Hannibal, Alice Through the Looking Glass) plays Daniel Miller, a newly-appointed CIA officer recruited to be an undercover spy in the Berlin bureau. He is tasked with finding the mole within the agency, known only by the alias, “Thomas Shaw,” who’s been leaking classified intel.
The 30-second trailer, which will play in theaters ahead of Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne starting Thursday, depicts just how intense and dramatic things are about to get for Daniel as he begins his dangerous mission.
“No one can know why you’re there,” Michelle Forbes’ character, the CIA’s Berlin station head Valerie Edwards, warns Daniel during their ominous phone call in the dead of night. “Not the chief. Not his deputies. Not a soul.”
“Who am I looking at?” Daniel asks, bracing for the worst.
ET also exclusively premieres one of the first scenes from Berlin Station, a Paramount TV production, which was filmed entirely on location. In the clip, we follow Daniel as he meets Valerie for the first time in his new CIA headquarters. His arrival comes in the nick of time, as this unidentified “Shaw” mole has leaked confidential information endangering U.S.-Germany relations.
“We’re on thin ice with the Germans,” Valerie says as she hands Daniel his new CIA ID. “Until everything settles, everyone will have to be their most charming.”
“I’ll do my best,” Daniel says in response, before we get a first look at the bustling Berlin offices — Valerie lovingly calls it “an insane asylum” — and meeting several of his new colleagues, played by Richard Dillane and Leland Orser, who bring him into the madness: “Welcome to Berlin.”
Rhys Ifans and Richard Jenkins also star in the drama, created and executive produced by New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer. Bradford Winters (The Americans, Oz) serves as showrunner.
Berlin Station, premieres in October on EPIX.
The Hobbit star Richard Armitage lends his voice to a new recording of the Charles Dickens classic David Copperfield, thought to be Dickens’ most autobiographical work. David Copperfield follows the titular character through his tumultuous life, encountering characters like his wicked stepfather and his lovely, eccentric great-aunt.
In the preface to the book’s 1867 edition, Dickens made his affection for this particular book known, writing, “Of all my books, I like this the best. It will be easily believed that I am a fond parent to every child of my fancy, and that no one can ever love that family as dearly as I love them. But, like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child. And his name is David Copperfield.”
The audiobook goes on sale Tuesday, Feb. 2, but EW has an exclusive clip from the book below:

Fresh off the heels of “Hannibal,” Richard Armitage has been cast to topline “Berlin Station,” the upcoming original spy series for Epix.
Armitage will star as Daniel Meyer, the cerebral, newly-anointed CIA case officer who goes from being an analyst at Langley to an undercover agent in Berlin tasked with finding an informant.
Michelle Forbes (“The Killing,” “True Blood,” “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2”) has also been cast in the 10-episode thriller. She will play Valerie Edwards, the no-nonsense administrator who serves as a Berlin Station Section Head.
