Counterpart tells the story of Howard Silk, a lowly cog in a bureaucratic UN agency who is turning the last corner of a life filled with regret, when he discovers the agency he works for is guarding a secret: a crossing to a parallel dimension.
He is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger and double cross. The only man he can trust is “Prime,” Howard’s near-identical counterpart from this parallel world.
Through Howard and his “counterpart” on the other side, the show will navigate themes of identity, idealism, what ifs, and lost love.
This espionage thriller, with a metaphysical twist begins Sunday on Starz.
