For those of you, like me, who love Sean Bean but are sick to death of seeing him get killed off in the first act (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring; Season 1 of “Game of Thrones”), good news!
Bean has been tapped to headline a new drama series for TNT entitled “Legends”. The cable network has ordered 10 episodes from the pilot written/produced by Alexander Cary, Jonathan Levin, and Howard Gordon. Gordon and Cary both list “Homeland” as their other credits, so we have a good feeling about this one.
The show is based on a book by Robert Littell and follows the exploits of master spy Martin Odum (played by Bean) who is so good at his undercover assignments that he begins to have somewhat of an identity crisis. Sounds good so far! The series also stars some badass ladies including Ali Larter, Tina Majorino, and Amber Valletta. Sounds like Mr. Bean won’t be lacking for quality female companionship in this one…
The show is slated to premiere sometime next year. I’m excited to see Sean Bean back on TV, howsaboutchu??
