Kyle Chandler isn’t in Dillon, Texas anymore.
Netflix released the first trailer for its upcoming drama “Bloodline” on Monday, with the 13-episode original series set to go live on March 20. Chandler stars as John Rayburn, a Florida Sheriff who is none too happy when his black sheep brother Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) lands back on the family’s doorstep.
Whereas he played a kind-hearted football coach on NBC’s Texas-set “Friday Night Lights,” Chandler’s “Bloodline” character has a dark past and an even darker future.
“Sometimes you know something is coming. You feel it in the air. You don’t sleep at night,” John says in a voiceover. “The voice in your head is telling you something is going to go terribly wrong and there is nothing you can do to stop it.”
“That’s how I felt when my brother came home,” John adds.
“Your life isn’t always going to be this perfect you know. things happen to people,” Danny says later.
“Bloodline” is set in picturesque Islamorada, Florida, but the tone is anything but sunny. The use of Lissie’s haunting cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” in the trailer just adds to the show’s foreboding disposition.
Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Norbert Leo Butz, Jamie McShane, Jacinda Barrett and Enrique Murciano co-star on the series, alongside Chloe Sevigny, Steve Pasquale, Mia Kirshner, and Katie Finneran.
