Here’s hoping Sean Bean doesn’t lose his head amidst gang warfare.
The Game of Thrones alum will star in the 10-episode drama series The Oath, premiering in 2018 on the streaming network Crackle.
Produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, the show explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend. Bean will play hard-charging cop Tom Hammond, who used to be the ruthless leader of a prominent gang made up of those who enforce the law. After his release from prison, Hammond’s desire to take back control of the group he once led puts him head-to-head with those who used to have his back.
Bean’s TV credits also include Legends, Missing and The Frankenstein Chronicles.
