Noah Centineo‘s new Netflix gig is a decidedly different one from that of Lara Jean’s boyfriend: The To All the Boys actor will star as a fledging CIA lawyer in an untitled drama for the streamer, TVLine has learned.
Created by Alexi Hawley (The Rookie, Castle), the series follows Centineo’s character as he becomes “enmeshed in dangerous international power politics when a former asset threatens to expose the nature of her long-term relationship with the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime,” per the official synopsis.
In addition to starring, Centineo — who is also known for playing Jesus Adams Foster on Freeform’s The Fosters — will serve as executive producer on the Netflix series. Other EPs include Hypnotic’s Doug Liman, Gene Klein and David Bartis (Suits, Covert Affairs).
