NEW RELEASE: BRIGGS LAND Vol. 1 "STATE OF GRACE"
An American Family Under Siege! The critically-acclaimed crime epic set in a secessionist
militia compound mixes politics with complex family issues, from the New York Times
bestselling author of DMZ.
Grace Briggs is the new head of the Briggs family, the largest and most secretive antigovernment secessionist movement in the United States. For over a hundred years it's been a safe harbor for anyone looking to live a simple, quiet life off the grid, but it has since devolved into a hotbed for white extremists, armed militia, and domestic terrorism. She seeks to take control of the Land—and her family—from the forces of extremism and hate, and return it to its core values. But can she accomplish that before law enforcement finds the evidence it needs to wipe Briggs Land off the map?
In development for television at AMC.
