Before Stonebridge & Scott, there were Porter & Collinson. 

The hit Cinemax series Strike Back recently ended its four season run. Now it’s time to see how it all started as Strike Back: Origins arrives now on Digital HD today. In this six-part series that inspired the hit Cinemax series Strike Back, former British Special Forces soldier John Porter (Richard Armitage) joins Section 20, a top-secret British-government agency run by Hugh Collinson (Andrew Lincoln), who was part of a 2003 Iraq rescue mission marred by soldier fatalities – staining Porter’s military career and sending him into seclusion for seven bitter years.  Now, a familiar face from that mission has resurfaced in a recent international crisis, one involving (among other elements) a missile-encryption plot involving renegade agents and a group of ruthless terrorists.  After persuading Collinson to add him to the Section 20 team, Porter travels from Basra to Zimbabwe to Afghanistan to track down the terrorists. In the process, Porter discovers some new evidence that could restore his Special Forces reputation.  Porter makes an appearance in the first season of Cinemax’s “Strike Back,” during which he is captured on a mission and Section 20 head Col. Eleanor Grant (Amanda Mealing) brings in U.S. Special Forces soldier Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) to work with Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and the team. Scott previously ran a mission with Porter in Iraq and had knowledge of their target, terrorist Latif.

Strike Back: Origins, hailed as “another win for fans of action drama” (NY Daily News), is now available via digital retailers for the SRP of $7.79 (SD), $10.49 (HD).
