John Krasinski-Led JACK RYAN TV Show Ordered To Series At Amazon

After nearly a year of development, Amazon has given their upcoming Jack Ryan series the green light. John Krasinski will star as the titular CIA analyst in the latest adaptation of Tom Clancy's work.

It's been almost exactly a year since Paramount TV & Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes announced their plans to develop a television series based on Tom Clancy's popular CIA hero Jack Ryan and on Tuesday, Amazon officially greenlit the project for a 10-episode first season. 

John Krasinski (The Office), who was announced as Ryan back in late April, will headline the series and the story will follow Ryan "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." Additionally, instead of adaptating any particular Jack Ryan story, the series will only use the novels as source material and craft an original tale that takes us back to Ryan's roots, further exploring his prime as a CIA analyst/operative. 

Lost alums Carlton Cuse & Graham Roland served as co-developers and will likely stay on-board as showrunners and/or executive producers when the show launches production at some point this fall. Krasinski is the fifth actor to take on the Ryan mantle in the last twenty-six years, following Alec Baldwin (The Hunt For Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games; Clear And Present Danger), Ben Affleck (The Sum Of All Fears), and Chris Pine (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit).
