The Night Agent (Netflix) -- From creator and EP Shawn Ryan -- Premieres 3/23/23



https://deadline.com/2023/02/1235252929-1235252929/

Netflix has set a March 23 premiere date for action thriller The Night Agent and released a slew of first-look images. See them below and watch a teaser above.

Created and showrun by Shawn Ryan (S.W.A.T., The Shield, the 10-episode drama stars Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland, a low-level FBI agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning an emergency hotline for American spies that never rings. Then a call comes in from a terrified civilian, Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan). Peter must protect Rose and work with her to uncover a fast-moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office and threatens the country.

Hong Chau, Sarah Desjardins, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eve Harlow, Enrique Murciano Phoenix Raei and DB Woodside also star in the series from Sony Pictures Television Studios based on the novel by Matthew Quirk.




The lead of this show from his IMDB is pretty unknown. But a Shawn Ryan written and created action thriller will get me to try it,

Gabriel Basso's been in a few movies that I have watched mainly when he was a teen Super 8 and The Kings of Summer which are two pretty good movies. He hasn't had many projects since 2016. This and Hillbilly Elegy in 2020. It does look like he has two other projects in the works.

Yeah Shawn Ryan's name is enough to get me to watch. Big fan of his work.

It's funny that Hong Chau is the biggest name in the cast (and she deserves recognition)

He was the son in The Big C - that's where I first saw him. And then the movies you mentioned.
I was thinking about The Big C the other day and wondered what happened to Basso and haven't seen him in anything for a while (never got around to checking IMDB)

Looks decent but also very generic

Watched first episode and I'm in for the rest. The 4K DV/Atmos was great.

SOLID opening episode. If they didn’t actually film in DC (the Metro in the tunnel was probably at set), they took great lengths to make it look legit. Even the freeway chase on the bridge looked like they were headed between Rosslyn and Georgetown.

Also, and this is key, I greatly appreciate the lengths they took to carry through the damage to the SUV to the next morning. There’s a scene in Bad Boy II where the Ferrari gets shots up, then the next cut back everything is back to normal. Bugs me to no end and takes me out of the film.

I liked the lead and the lady on the run is doing a good job with shock and trying to process things without being annoying.

Definitely in for more.

Wrapped it up this morning. Good to see Peter Gallagher in there playing a type of character he's not used to playing or at least one that I remember playing as. I'm down with season 2 if they make it.

Watched the first episode. Wow, so exciting! Looking forward to watching more. I like the characters so far.

Just started this last night. I'll try to watch at least half the season today.

Currently this is the No. 1 trending show on Netflix. Good start. It has a very 24-like vibe. Pretty intense sequences, especially the start with the terrorist bombing, the assassins attacking that house and then later the car chase. Shawn Ryan usually doesn't do this style of show. I'm hooked so far.

Not actually Peter Gallagher but the resemblance is definitely there. Once the guy spoke I knew it wasn’t him and had to IMBD the guy. LOL

I’m now through 4 episodes. I wasn’t really clear how the B plot tied into everything until it was revealed the young college girl was the VPs daughter. And that:

Spoiler:


The VP appears to be the mastermind behind the A plot. And Peter recognizes the agent on the VPs daughter’s detail.



I am liking Peter and Rose’s chemistry with them working together to figure this out. Multiple layers of conspiracy and betrayal it appears. Like I said earlier, this does have a very 24 like vibe. I’ll likely finish this by tomorrow.

Just finished it today. I watched 5-9 last night and finished the finale today. I thought this was really entertaining and the finale had a lot of action and tension.

The season plot was wrapped up, which I definitely appreciate. I would be down for more adventures of Agent Pete Sutherland. I did like his chemistry with Rose, but I don't know how she would fit in since she's a civilian and Sutherland is now going overseas for his next assignment. I liked that they did a cover of We can be heroes at the end. Perfect way to end the season.

Funny that this show actually had 2 24 alumnis. Kari Matchett, who played the POTUS was in season 6 and DB Woodside played Wayne Palmer.

For an actor who I never heard of prior to this, Gabriel Basso was a pretty impressive action star and a pretty good lead in this.

A potential 2nd season is looking very promising after how well it did this weekend. A lot of people watched it.

Yeah off to a very good start, that's the 2nd highest of any show this year behind Ginny and Georgia. The Recruit topped out at 95m hours and managed a renewal.

It was an easy binge IMO. A pretty fast paced action show. And it's not a massive time commitment with only 10 episodes.

I know not everyone has the time to watch it right away, but it's worth watching if you're a fan of the serialized action genre.

I saw the preview on Metflix and it looked a lot like a version of Three Days of the Condor, that’s not a bad thing.
Based on the comments looks like I need to start watching it.

Can’t believe Hong Chau is in this. She’s in everything now. She’s just terrific in all her roles.

First ep reminded me of a little more action Slow Horses on Apple. And, I love Slow Horses!
