Watch Trailer For ‘Pure’ Coming To WGN America

“Pure” takes us deep inside a closed, secretive subculture through the eyes of a conflicted, good-hearted man trying to protect his family and preserve his faith. Inspired by true events, “Pure” is the journey of Noah Funk-newly elected Mennonite pastor-who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a transborder smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels. But just when he thinks he’s won, he’s thrust headlong into a desperate world of violence, greed, and betrayal.

The ensemble cast for “Pure” includes: Ryan Robbins (“Arrow,” “The Killing”) as Noah Funk; Alex Paxton-Beesley (“The Strain”) as Anna Funk, A.J. Buckley (“CSI: NY”, “Justified”) as Detective Bronco Novak; and Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee Rosie Perez (“Search Party,” White Men Can’t Jump) as DEA Agent Phoebe O’Reilly.

Produced by Two East Productions and Cineflix, “Pure” was created and written by Michael Amo (“The Listener”) and directed by Ken Girotti (“Orphan Black,” “Vikings”). Amo and Girotti serve as executive producers along with Brett Burlock, Peter Emerson and David MacLeod (“Call Me Fitz,” “Haven”). Cineflix Rights has the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to “Pure.”

WGN America will be the exclusive U.S. TV home for the first season of “Pure.” The premiere date will be announced soon. “Pure” previously premiered on Canada’s CBC and the first season is now streaming exclusively on Hulu.
