TNT Greenlights ‘Legends’ Starring Sean Bean [+ Video]

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s The Last Ship pick up, TNT has ordered 10 episodes of Legends, a spy thriller starring Sean Bean (Game of Thrones) and executive produced by Homeland‘s Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary. The series is based on a novel by Robert Littell, and will follow deep undercover agent Martin Odum (Bean), who “has the uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job.”

Unfortunately, Martin goes too deep undercover and begins to question his own identity. His suspicions are furthered by the appearance of a stranger who suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is. Check out the trailer below for a sneak peek at the repercussions Martin’s identity crisis has on his work and home life.

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) in a statement. “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.”

In addition to Bean, Legends also stars Ali Larter (Heroes), Rob Mayes (The Client List),Tina Majorino (Grey’s Anatomy), Steve Harris (The Practice), Amber Valletta (Revenge) and Lux Haney Jardine (Abraham Lincon: Vampire Hunter).
