In Plainview is now live across North America! Watch it on Amazon Prime Video and AppleTV.
In Plainview is a revenge thriller set in the Canadian prairies. An ex-dirty-cop hiding in witness protection is hunted by the partner he betrayed, an unhinged hired gun and a jilted ex-lover who want his ill-gotten fortune — and their own brand of revenge — all to themselves.
A former dirty cop fresh out of prison, bent on getting revenge on the partner who sold him out. A fastidious idea man not comfortable with violence. As in, he doesn’t love being the one being violent.
Penner’s hired gun. Former military man who doesn’t share Penner’s violence issues. He’s got one job, pull the trigger. And he’s good at it. The only side he’s on is his own. He’s the wild card, here.
Penner’s former partner. Ratted on Penner then went into Witness Protection, before going off the grid. Rand has seen the error of his ways and settled into a new, lower-key life… and wants to keep it that way.
Rand’s ex. Has a history of being opportunistic when it comes to her relationships with men. Wynter has hit on hard times, and isn’t above using her feminine wiles to get what she wants.
Small-town loner who desperately wants to fit in and be noticed. Shunned by Rand and the others, he is quick to jump into the fray when given the opportunity, even if it feels ill-advised.
A (very) liberal man of the church with ties to Rand’s past. Reverend Rickman facilitated Rand’s fresh start and could be about to feel the consequences of his kindness.
