Jack Ryan will be reinvented with a modern sensibility of the famed hero from Tom Clancy, focusing on him as an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. The series will follow him uncovering a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the centre of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.
Timothy Hutton (whose credits include Leverage and American Crime) will be playing the role of Singer, who serves as Deputy Director of Operations.
Jack Ryan is co-produced by Paramount TV and Skydance TV, with Carlton Cuse, Graham Roland serving as Executive Producers alongside Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross, along with the film franchise’s producer Mace Neufeld and Lindsey Springer of Carlton Cuse Productions. The trio will join already cast John Krasinski, Abbie Cornish, Wendell Pierce, Dina Shihabi, Ali Suliman, Marie-Josée Croze, Peter Fonda, Mena Massoud, John Hoogenakker and Al Sapienza.
