Welcome to Banshee. Population: Badass.

In this exclusive trailer for Banshee, Cinemax’s forthcoming drama from executive producers Alan Ball (True Blood), Greg Yaitanes (House), and Peter Macdissi, get your first glimpse at New Zealand native Antony Starr as Lucas Hood, a convict who assumes the identity of a man to become new sheriff of a small town with big problems (and an Amish community!). Of course, Hood doesn’t pick the town at random; it’s a place where his past and danger-filled present intersect. (Or, per the voiceover in the clip, it’s “the one place [he] absolutely should not go”).

Additionally, EW can exclusively report that the action-drama series is set to debut January 11, 2013 at 10 p.m. on Cinemax.
