AT&T Announces Third Season Pick-Up of “Full Circle”

Ten Episode Season From Writer Jorge Zamacona Will Air Exclusively on AUDIENCE Network on DIRECTV and AT&T U-Verse

Following the success of 2 seasons of the critically acclaimed series “Full Circle,” AT&T * will come back with a third. The 10 half-hour episodes will air in 2016 only on AUDIENCE® Network on both DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse. Production is set to begin in January in Los Angeles.

Season 3 of “Full Circle” will give viewers a look into the dark underworld of national politics. It focuses on a sex scandal that threatens to destroy a Presidential candidate and stop his almost certain election. Like season 2 of “Full Circle,” the upcoming season will expand upon the original format of season 1, in which we see a daisy chain of characters interacting with each other through the ten episodes. The main thrust of each episode takes place in a high-end hotel in Miami during the days leading up to the Democratic primary.

“‘Full Circle’ is an incredibly thought-provoking series. The level of talent we have each season continues to be noteworthy,” said Christopher Long, senior vice president, Original Content & Production, AT&T. “A seasoned and talented TV writer like Jorge Zamacona will give the show’s intense dialog a brand new feel this season. His writing will lure viewers into the world of conspiracy and politics— which pairs perfectly as we enter into our presidential election season.”

Jorge Zamacona, a successful show runner and executive producer of many well-known TV series, is new to “Full Circle.” He started his career on the Emmy-award winning show “St. Elsewhere” and went on to shows like “HOMICIDE: Life on the Streets”, “OZ”, and “Third Watch.” He also created TV shows for CBS, Spelling, NBC and has written countless features. Jorge is currently helping run the Michael Bay/TNT series, “The Last Ship.”

BAFTA-award winning executive producer/director Nick Hamm (Rogue) will produce “Full Circle.” Zamacona will serve as writer and executive producer. Momentum TV is the production company behind all three seasons. FremantleMedia International will handle global distribution of the series.
