Just received:



Amazon will debut Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, co-produced by Paramount Television and Skydance Television, August 31st on Amazon Prime Video.


The series is a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the unexpected Tom Clancy hero. It centers on Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. The series follows the titular character as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.


The one-hour, eight-episode dramatic series stars John Krasinski (A Quiet Place, 13 Hours) as Jack Ryan, as well as Wendell Pierce (The Wire) as James Greer and Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as Cathy Mueller. It is executive produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Graham Roland (Fringe, Prison Break), who created the series for television and serve as co-showrunners, Krasinski, Academy Award nominated director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) who also directed the pilot and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. Executive producing the series with Bay at Platinum Dunes are Andrew Form (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Brad Fuller.


Additionally, Daniel Sackheim, (The Americans), Mace Neufeld (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.) and Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Star Trek Beyond) and Marcy Ross (Grace and Frankie, Altered Carbon) also executive produce the series with Lindsey Springer and Allyson Seeger serving as a co-executive producers.


Prime Video members can stream or download popular and award-winning Prime Original series like The Grand Tour, Golden Globe-winner The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Emmy-winner The Man in the High Castle, American Gods, and the highly anticipated Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan starring John Krasinski, which will premiere on August 31, 2018. Prime members can watch anytime, anywhere via the Prime Video app on Android and iOS phones and tablets, select Smart TVs, game consoles, Fire TV stick, Apple TV 3 or 4.

Ahh, Tom Clancy, joining the pantheon of Airport bookshop authors who continue to churn out content well after the have kicked the bucket,


Should be worth a look, but hey apparently Michael Bay has some involvement, so at least there should be good looking explosions :)

I hoped that they would do a better job of this latest Jack Ryan than they did on the last outing. The longer format better suits development of the character but the trailer makes it look like they've done an average job on the storyline. Sigh.

Yep saw it and was all excited thinking it was released like a surprise. Never mind, not too long to wait.

Wendell Pierce as James Greer could be a casting masterstroke.


I will look forward to giving it a watch.

I think that's a bit harsh; I just finished reading Power and Empire and actually quite enjoyed it. I'm glad that the Ryanverse is being continued.


(Some of the shadow writers are a mixed bag).




This series might well be the reason I subscribe to Amazon.

No signature to see here, move along...
