WGN America Unveils Key Art and Gripping New Trailer for 'Outsiders'

WGN America has unveiled the key art and  new trailer for its intense and gritty original drama "Outsiders," which premieres Tuesday, January 26 at 9 PM ET/PT. The new trailer showcases the Farrell's rallying cry, "Ged-Gedyah," which loosely translates to "Hell Yeah," signifiying clan unity as they gear up to take action.

A struggle of power and control set in the rugged hills of Appalachia, "Outsiders" explores the epic battle between the Farrell Clan, a tight-knit family of renegades who have lived atop the rugged Shay Mountain for over two hundred years, and their fight to defend their way of life from the town below and anyone who would dare to challenge them.

The ensemble cast for "Outsiders" includes: David Morse ("Treme," "Hurt Locker") as Big Foster, the gruff and powerful heir to tribe leadership; Thomas M. Wright ("The Bridge," "Top of the Lake") as Sheriff Wade Houghton, a cop who has a rough and mysterious history with the Farrells, and grapples with several personal troubles of his own; Ryan Hurst ("Sons of Anarchy," "Bates Motel"), as Lil Foster, a massive mountain man and son of Big Foster; Joe Anderson ("The Divide," "Across the Universe") as Asa, a former member of the Farrell clan looking to rejoin the family after a 10-year stint with the outside world; Gillian Alexy ("The Americans," "Damages") as G'Winveer, a healer and a survivor, and Asa's trusted confidante; Kyle Gallner ("American Sniper," "Veronica Mars") as Hasil, a young, intuitive soul who feels rejected by the group; Christina Jackson ("Boardwalk Empire," "Deception") as Sally-Ann, a beautiful girl from a mining town who is fascinated by the Farrells, and Hasil, in particular; Francie Swift ("Hostages," "House of Cards") as Haylie, a clever and cunning all-American community relations manager representing the encroaching coal company; and Phyllis Somerville ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "The Big C") as Lady Ray, the regal yet tough leader of the Farrell clan.

Hailing from Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios, "Outsiders," is created and written by award-winning playwright Peter Mattei, who executive produces alongside Fedora Entertainment's Emmy(R) Award-winner Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me," "Analyze This") and Michael Wimer ("2012," "Rake"), and Touchy Feely Films' Emmy Award-winner Paul Giamatti ("John Adams," "Sideways") and Dan Carey ("All Is Bright").
