While we all remember what happened the last time Sean Bean headed up a 10-episode series on cable, something tells us TNT's 'Legends' has a bit more stability in mind. The cable network has officially greenlit for 2014 the new spy thriller series based on the Robert Littell spy novel of the same name, starring Bean, Ali Larter and 'True Blood's Tina Majorino, but will 'Legends' prove the next big hit for TNT? Preview the new spy thriller series inside!
'Homeland' won't be signing off for good any time soon, what with the truckload of Emmy accolades given for the first season, and the second's ratings recently overtaking 'Dexter,' but that isn't about to stop producers Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff from launching the next buzzy drama. The pair have teamed with FX and a former 'LOST' writer to develop 'Tyrant,' a new Middle Eastern intrigue drama that has all the executives excited. Who is the 'Tyrant,' and why will it have you talking?
Somebody get Will Smith on the line, because this one sounds a little familiar. 'Homeland's executive producer Howard Gordon and 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' writer Josh Friedman are combining their love of drama and robots for NBC, developing a high-concept mystery series set in humanity's future. NBC has certainly attempted its share of complex, layered sci-fi in recent years, but will a robot uprising be the next big buzz?
