WATCH: Full Trailer For New Damian Lewis Drama ‘Homeland’

Damian Lewis, Clare Danes and Mandy Patinkin in Homeland

Let’s cut to the chase, shall we? You like Damian Lewis (as proven by this little poll we did), WE like Damian Lewis (and are not afraid to admit it), so if there’s a gritty new TV drama which features Damian Lewis, we’re going to want to watch it, aren’t we?

Especially when it looks as good as Showtime’s ‘Homeland’, a one-hour drama in which Damian plays a returning U.S. Marine who had been presumed dead. Claire Danes is the sceptical CIA officer who wonders if he’s on the level, and Mandy Patinkin plays her boss.

Here’s the teaser trailer, to whet your appetites:

And here’s the long trailer which explains everything. Frankly, this looks astonishing:
