John Krasinski is reporting for CIA field duty.
The eight-episode drama — which is based on an idea conceived by Lost’s Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland and therefore not a direct adaptation of Clancy’s popular book series — follows Krasinski’s up-and-coming CIA analyst Jack Ryan, who is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. The show’s cast also includes Wendell Pierce (Suits, The Wire) and Abbie Cornish (Limitless), as well as Timothy Hutton (American Crime) in a recurring role.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is slated to debut on Amazon Prime Video in 2018.
