TNT hit New York Comic-Con 2015 this week with three of its fall shows. On Thursday, Sean Bean and executive producer Ken Biller screened the first episode of the completely reimagined spy thriller Legends. On Friday, Rebecca Romijn and the cast of The Librarians took the stage with executive producer Dean Devlin to talk about the second season of the blockbuster hit. And Jeff Hephner popped in to introduce and sneak peek of TNT’s spy drama Agent X (above).
Check out some of the highlights following the jump.
TNT has four hot shows aimed at the 2015 Fall Schedule: The Librarians: Season Two, Major Crimes: Season Four Part 2, Legends Season Two and Agent X, making its series premiere.
The Librarians broke out last winter with an adventurous/magical dramedy that felt reminiscent of Warehouse 13, and Agent X takes shadowy government agencies to a new and narrower level: John Case aka Agent X is the ultimate clandestine agent, operated at the direction of the Vice-President of the United States only when all else fails and ultimate discretion (even from the President) is required.
Legend continues the story of the FBI agent whose entire life seems to be a lie – and who is wanted for a murder he didn’t commit. Season Two features a new supporting cast, with Sean Bean (still not dead!) returning as the apparently nameless agent.
Major Crimes is second only to Rizzoli & Isles as the summer’s most watched basic cable dramas. For fall premiere times, the season two Librarians trailer and more, follow the jump.
Guess what? The role of Vice-President is more than a mostly ceremonial position – it’s a role that is of vital importance to the security and well-being of America! TNT today announced that Sharon Stone has been signed to play Vice-President Natalie Maccabee in Agent X, a pilot with a terrific concept at its core. Maccabee ran for Vice-President in her late husband’s place and won. Initially fearing a mostly ceremonial role, she discovers that, along with her Chief Steward and a mysterious secret operative dubbed Agent X, she is expected to protect the Constitution in times of great crisis.
Agent X (a working title that I hope they decide to keep) is written by William Blake Herron (The Bourne Identity), which immediately gives it some cachet – and makes it of interest to everyone who loves a good espionage tale. For more, follow the jump to check out the press release.
