Amazon will be the exclusive UK TV home of new Bourne spin-off series Treadstone.
The online giant has picked up the international rights to USA Network’s drama, from the producers of the Bourne franchise. Amazon Prime Video will be the home of the series outside of the US, with the show launching in January 2020 – following its October debut in the US.
Treadstone is an action-packed thriller set amidst the CIA black ops program Operation: Treadstone. Exploring both the origin of the infamous covert program, as well as connecting to present-day special ops, Treadstone follows the action across the globe — from D.C. to Berlin to Paris and beyond.
Using a mysterious behavior-modification protocol, Treadstone turns its recruits around the world into nearly-superhuman assassins, following sleeper agents as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their dangerous missions.
Jeremy Irvine, Tracy Ifeachor, Omar Metwally, Brian J. Smith, Hyo Joo Han, Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Emilia Schüle and Michelle Forbes star in the series, which is produced by UCP and developed by Tim Kring, who executive produces alongside Captivate’s Ben Smith and Jeffrey Weiner, and Dan Friedk.
“The Bourne films are popular with our customers around the world and it’s exciting to see the franchise move to television with Treadstone,” Brad Beale, Vice President of World Wide Content Licensing for Prime Video, said in a statement. “Prime members love shows with action and intrigue like Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and our latest anti-super hero hit The Boys and we know that Treadstone will be another great addition to Prime Video in 2020.”
Amazon’s acquisition sees the show join USA Network’s big hit Mr. Robot on Prime Video. Here’s the teaser video announcing it:
