Exclusive: People as Pawns in 'Endgame'
Here's a novel concept: An agoraphobic world chess champion finds himself to be an unwitting sleuth in the new Hulu series Endgame. It's an intriguing twist on the detective genre -- think Lie to Me meets Bobby Fischer -- and we have an exclusive clip from the Canadian-produced show!
Big Love star Shawn Doyle plays Arkady Balagan, a brilliant and arrogant Russian chess champion who confines himself to a hotel room after witnessing his fiancée's brutal murder. Never leaving his suite, the intuitive thinker plays out every move on his chessboard in multiple scenarios using his genius to solve mysteries that baffle investigators.
The first season of Endgame premieres Monday, January 9th, exclusively on Hulu and Hulu Plus.
