Amazon Has Officially Picked Up A New JACK RYAN TV Series, Starring THE OFFICE Actor

It’s been in the works for a bit now, as we’ve all heard about a JACK RYAN series being worked on by Amazon. We’ve heard bits about the casting, namely that THE OFFICE star John Krasinski would be playing the titular character, and about how the series would have some humor to off-set the action. But now comes the official word that Amazon, having liked what they saw in the pilot, have ordered a 10 episode season of the show. It took a year for the whole thing to come together.

 

Amazon is likely hoping to have greater success with JACK RYAN on the small screen than Hollywood had with him on the big screen. The character, who’s definitely part of a global brand, has had a hit-or-miss life in the movies. The last attempt to launch Ryan into the same tier of Tinseltown super-spies that includes Jason Bourne, James Bond, and Ethan Hunt, was 2014’s JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT, which fizzled in just about every way.

We’re excited to add the Jack Ryan global franchise to our robust originals pipeline,” Roy Price, head of Amazon Studios said. “Our customers will enjoy a compelling adaptation of the action-packed spy thriller book series, further raising the bar for the quality level of storytelling that has made Prime Video a leading destination for content.

The project is being developed by Carlton Cuse (BATES MOTEL, LOST) and Graham Roland (ALMOST HUMAN).
