Hot on the heels of the news that TNT has greenlit a new action series from producer Michael Bay, the network has announced that it has also ordered 10 episodes of a new spy drama starring Sean Bean (Game of Thrones). Based on the novel by Robert Littell, Legends follows Martin Odum (Bean), an undercover agent working for the FBI's Deep Cover Operations (D.C.O.) division. Martin has the uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job. But he begins to question his own identity when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t the man he believes himself to be.
Alexander Cary (Homeland, Lie to Me) and Jonathan Levin (Charmed) serve as executive producers, along with showrunners Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris, the creators of Sleeper Cell. Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor, The Day After Tomorrow) and Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard) serve as consulting producers. The pilot was directed and executive-produced by David Semel (Heroes, Person of Interest) and written by Nachmanoff, who developed the story with Gordon and Bomback.
"Legends has everything you want in a good spy drama: intriguing characters, multi-layered plots, a terrific cast and lots of action and suspense," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "At the center of it all is Sean Bean, giving an outstanding performance in an extremely complex and difficult role. We are very excited to work with Howard Gordon and his fellow executive producers, who have put together a truly extraordinary drama."
Over/Under how many episodes before he dies.
quote:Yes, yes he was. I never saw the sequel (heard it sucked), but of al the movies for Bean to not die in, Silent Hill doesn't seem like the right one.
Wasn't Kit Harington in the Silent Hill sequel?
