Thumbs up Jack Ryan series coming to Amazon

Jack Ryan Series From Lost Vets Lands Series Order at Amazon


Already an iconic character of literature and film, Jack Ryan is now coming to television.

Amazon has given a series order to an eponymous TV project about the CIA analyst-turned-United States president who originated in Tom Clancy’s novels.


According to our sister site Deadline, the series will not be a direct adaptation of the books, but will use them as source material for a contemporary take on the character as he navigates his job as a CIA operative.

The project is co-created by Lost vets Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, who will executive-produce alongside Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Lindsey Springer, Andrew Form and Mace Neufeld.

I like Jack Ryan, don't love Carlton Cuse, generally can't stand Michael Bay, but I might be on board for this anyway.

Wow. That's new. Dude went all action hero-y in Benghazi though.

‘Jack Ryan’ series with John Krasinski picked up at Amazon

A new “Jack Ryan” series starring John Krasinski has landed a series greenlight at Amazon with a 10-episode order.

Based on Tom Clancy’s iconic CIA character, the series, described as a reinvention of the classic story, hails from Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) and Graham Roland, who shepherded the adaptation.

Don't know how I missed the John Krasinski news in the spring. The wife and I finally watched 13 Hours a few weeks ago. It was ok. It was Michael Bay doing a Ridley Scott impression. He couldn't decide between the handheld, guerrilla camerawork that he attempted or the steadycam gloss of something like The Rock. It made for a slightly uneven viewing experience. Bringing it back to John, I loved him in the movie. I'm thrilled Amazon is picking this up. Right now, there's nothing that they've done for original content to pull me away from Hulu or Netflix. If they can step up the licensed properties, that might get their studio's ball rolling.
