After really making a name for himself with TV’s 24, it appears Keifer Sutherland is returning to TV espionage with a new series. He’ll both star in and executive produce a new series which is as yet untitled for Paramount+.
The untitled drama revolves around private espionage operative James Weir (Sutherland) who is in the midst of a battle over the preservation of democracy in a world at odds with misinformation, behavioral manipulation, the surveillance state and the interests that control the extraordinary powers.
The series, which is expected to debut on the streamer in 2022, reunites Sutherland with ViacomCBS exec David Nevins after the latter bought and developed 24 during his tenure at Fox.
“I’ve been an admirer of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra’s unique body of work for some time, and I’m thrilled to be working on this exciting new project with them and Paramount+,” said Sutherland. “Reuniting with David Nevins makes it all the more special. I can’t wait to see you all with this show in 2022.”
