James Badge Dale plays the role of Will Travers, an intelligence analyst who finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy that involves his own organization. The show’s premiere was highly anticipated by the audience since the pilot episode was shown in June. There has been a number of speculations and debates about the fate of the show on a network that already airs the likes of ‘Mad Men’.

The two hour premiere episode gave audience a god idea of what to expect in the episodes to follow. The network has ordered a total of 13 episodes. Some critics felt that the show may not be for everyone considering that the focus is more on the intrigue and mystery of the secret society than action scenes. The producer Henry Bromell has revealed that he found the inspiration for the show from his father who worked in the CIA for 25 years. He said that the focus will be on the nerdy and behind-the-scenes intelligence guys rather than those who are in operations.

Oscar nominated actress Miranda Richardson will also be seen playing an important role in the Rubicon. The show is directed by Allen Coulter who has earlier directed the likes of ‘The Sopranos’. James Badge Dale said that the series is meant for the audience that wants to sit down and be told a story that is subtle yet specific.
