We have another teaser trailer for the upcoming Amazon Prime exclusive series, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan. The new series starts John Krasinski as the CIA Analyst who keeps finding himself in the middle of the action and Wendell Pierce plays James Greer, the guy who keeps putting John in harm's way. The series is based on the character created by Tom Clancy who has starred in 9 novels of his own. He has been the subject of five movies played by four different actors: Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger), Ben Affleck (Sum of All Fears) and Chris Pine (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit). This is the first time the character has been adapted for television.
The series synopsis reads:
When CIA analyst Jack Ryan stumbles upon a suspicious series of bank transfers his search for answers pulls him from the safety of his desk job and catapults him into a deadly game of cat and mouse throughout Europe and the Middle East, with a rising terrorist figurehead preparing for a massive attack against the US and her allies.
No release date has been given for the 8-episode series. The teaser trailer is over a minute long, so it's a bit more than a teaser, and we get a much better look at Krasinski and Pierce in action.
