Much of it may be getting kept close to the chest for the moment, but from what we have seen of the new Sean Bean-led TNT drama Legends, from 24 and Homeland’s Howard Gordon, has been solid. Above all else, it will be nice to have Ned Stark back on our television screens, this time with a semi-automatic! Before the show premieres in August, TNT has released an all new, atmosphere focused trailer for the new series courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter:
For the uninitiated, the new action series, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “centers on undercover agent Martin Odum (Sean Bean), who works for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. Martin can transform himself into a completely different person for each job, but he begins to question his own identity when a mysterious stranger suggests Martin isn’t the man he believes himself to be.”
So some trippy Jason Bourne s**t seems to be what’s going down on this series, and that’s fine with us because if there’s one thing we action fans love with our gunplay, it’s a crisis of identity. Also, if that plot description means Bean will be portraying himself completely differently every episode Alias style, we’re totally cool with that too.
Currently there’s no word on how many times Bean’s character is set to die during the course of the series.
