Plot Synopsis

A local New Jersey cop, Harold Jensen, struggles to keep his family together while policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring Ramapo Mountains, home of a Native American tribe. After a terrible tragedy and coverup occurs, which involves Harold's wife Jean, an unholy alliance is forged between him and ex-con Phillip Kopus, a dangerous member of the tribe, who returned home to help his drug-dealing father, Jack, operate his business. THE RED ROAD is Sundance Channel's second wholly owned original scripted series. On Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, SundanceTV premiered the six-episode second season of THE RED ROAD. The Season 2 opener jumps directly into the fallout from the adrenaline-filled shootout involving Harold and Kopus, a dangerous member of a local Native American tribe. As Harold's wife Jean continues to put her life back together in the aftermath of the previous season's events, rumors begin to swirl that the tribe's newfound federal recognition will lead to the building of a casino up on the mountain. With tensions mounting, and Kopus' mother Marie arguing vehemently against it, the stage is set for a shocking discovery. By the end of the opening episode an unexpected murder has taken place that hints at the ripped-from-the-headlines topics ahead, including toxic dumping which raises the stakes for all the characters. In Season 2 every character faces an ordeal: Jean learns of dark family secrets; Kopus battles his conscience; and Harold must decide where his morals lie. Can they all find a path to redemption? For the show's second season, Native American actor Wes Studi joins the cast as tribal chief Levi.
On Thursday, May 7, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, SundanceTV premiered the Season 2 finale of THE RED ROAD. In the season ender, "Shadow Walker," Harold and Kopus locate Junior in Connecticut; Rachel assumes the role of parent as Jean spirals out of control; Kopus defends the tribe from an attack.
