taken

The small screen adaptation of Taken will debut on NBC on February 27 at 10 PM.

The series follows the origin story of younger, hungrier former Green Beret Bryan Mills (Clive Standen from Vikings) as he deals with a personal tragedy that shakes his world. As he fights to overcome the trauma of the incident and exact revenge, Mills is pulled into a career as a deadly CIA operative, a job that awakens his very particular, and very dangerous, set of skills. In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills that we’ve come to love from the “Taken” films.

The cast includes Brooklyn Sudano (My Wife and Kids), Gaius Charles (Friday Night Lights and Aquarius), Jennifer Beals (Flashdance), Jose Pablo Cantillo (The Walking Dead), Michael Irby (The Unit) and Monique Curnen (The Following).

Here is a trailer for Taken:

The new Amazon series Patriot will debut online on February 24.

The show follows the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner (Michael Dorman from Wonderland) whose latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going nuclear, which requires him to forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous “non-official cover” – that of a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm.

The cast includes Terry O’Quinn (Lost), Kurtwood Smith (That 70’s Show), Michael Chernus (Manhattan Project) and Kathleen Munroe (Call Me Fitz and Resurrection).

The world’s most elusive criminals from Raymond “Red” Reddington’s infamous list come together to form an elite mercenary team as they try to regain their self-worth after a lifetime of inflicting damage on the world. Seeking redemption for their past transgressions, this new group solves problems governments don’t dare touch. Blacklist undercover operative Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) joins the team’s brilliant and cunning chief, Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen), as well as lethal assassin and Tom’s nemesis Matias Solomon (Edi Gathegi), as they aim to be a force for good and right dangerous wrongs. Along with highly skilled members Nez Rowan (Tawny Cypress) and hacker Dumont (Adrian Martinez), they will undertake seemingly impossible missions – all in the hopes of repairing their damaged souls.

Set in Memphis and inspired by true events, the series will focus on a chance meeting in December 4, 1956 by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins who stumbled into an impromptu jam session that turned out to be a seminal moment in modern music history.
