Ben Smith I like ingredients, because they are smart!!
After five blockbuster movies that have grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide, the Bourne universe is making the jump to the small screen with Treadstone, a globe-trotting, time period-hopping action series that will explore the titular black ops organization that created Jason Bourne and numerous other CIA assassins.Premiering this fall on USA network, Treadstone “explores the origin story and present-day actions of the infamous covert program that uses behavior modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. The first season of Treadstone follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously ‘awakened’ to resume their deadly missions.” The plot of the series will span decades as it delves into Treadstone’s history and present activities – and while Jason Bourne is in the wind after the events of the last movie, his “presence will be felt” in the new show.
Ben Smith, producer of the Bourne film franchise, is showrunner and executive producer on the series. The cast includes Jeremy Irvine, Brian J. Smith, Omar Metwally, Tracy Ifeachor, and newcomers Han Hyo-joo and Emilia Schüle.
