AT&T AUDIENCE Network has set a November 18, 8pm premiere date for the original series, “ICE,” from Antoine Fuqua’s Fuqua Films and global independent studio Entertainment One (eOne). Ten hour-long episodes, currently in production in Los Angeles and Vancouver, will air exclusively on both DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse.

Of note given this blog’s specific interests, Judith Shekoni (“Heroes Reborn,” “The Twilight Saga” franchise) is a member of a starring cast that also includes Cam Gigandet (“The Magnificent Seven,” “The Twilight Saga” franchise), Jeremy Sisto (“Law and Order,” “Suburgatory”), Ray Winstone (“The Departed”),  Raymond Barry (“Training Day”), and Donald Sutherland (“The Hunger Games” franchise).

“ICE” is described as a high-impact, serialized crime drama that follows the Green Family, as they plunge into the underbelly of the Los Angeles diamond trade. Jake (Gigandet) and Freddy (Sisto) are half-brothers brought together by their father Isaac (Barry), the patriarch behind G&G Diamonds and their uncle Cam (Winstone). After wildcard Freddy kills a prominent diamond dealer, his brother Jake must bail him out and save the family business from a crime lord of the Los Angeles diamond trade (Shekoni). Jake must endure all of this while maneuvering amongst jewelry thugs, blood diamond deals, false certificates, the Feds, and Pieter Van De Bruin (Sutherland), a ruthless Afrikaanz diamond merchant who now heads up an Antwerp-based diamond cartel with the same cutthroat skills he applied as a surgeon in the South African armed forces.

Antoine Fuqua is directing and serves as executive producer. The original series is written and executive produced by Robert Munic (“Fighting,” “The Cleaner”).

DIRECTV and U-verse customers can find the AUDIENCE Network on U-verse Channel 1114 and DIRECTV Channel 239. They can also live stream it on the DIRECTV App and U-verse App for smartphones and tablets, and

No word on whether the series will be available on any other platform for those who aren’t AUDIENCE Network subscribers.
