A new investigative series called “Legends,” led by Sean Bean (“Game of Thrones”) and Ali Larter (“Heroes”), is premiering on August 27th on Bravo, the network recently announced.
The show is based on the award-winning book by novelist Robert Littell and follows Martin Odum, a character who lives a life in shadows as an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. The series comes from the executive producers of “Homeland” and “24.” For a sneak peek at LEGENDS, click here.
Following recent appearances at the Television Critics Association tour and San Diego Comicon, “Legends” has already generated social chatter with the hashtag #dontkillseanbean, homage to the grisly demise many of his past characters have met to date.
In the series premiere of “Legends,” deep cover agent Martin Odum (Bean) returns to the FBI after an assignment infiltrating the Citizen’s Army of Virginia (CAV), a domestic terrorist organization. He tries to re-connect with his estranged wife and son, put his life back together, and get the last “legend” behind him, but when the CAV announces an eminent attack, Martin must go back under in order to stop them. Also, a mysterious stranger confronts Martin to tell him that his whole life may be a deep cover legend and that everything he thinks he knows is a lie.
“Legends” begins August 27th at 9pm on Bravo.

TNT’s newest series, “Legends,” premieres next week, and we had the chance to join reporters in a press room roundtable at San Diego Comic-Con to find out what to expect. On Thursday, Aug. 7, we posted the video interview with Ali Larter, who plays Crystal McGuire.
Check out the video above or here. Plus, keep reading for the highlights from Larter about her character, an operative in the Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division who has a history with Sean Bean’s Martin Odum.
“One of the things about this show is not only are they taking really kind of difficult, interesting storylines and weaving it into this great mythology, we also want to have fun while we’re making it,” the actress said. “This isn’t just some dark, edgy show. It’s fun to watch also.”
EXCLUSIVE: Former Heroes star Ali Larter has been tapped as the female lead opposite Sean Bean in TNT‘s drama pilot Legends, from Homeland‘s Howard Gordon. Legends, developed by Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Mark Bomback from the novel by Robert Littell, centers on Martin Odum (Sean Bean), a deep-cover CIA operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. Larter will play Crystal, an operative with D.C.O. who has a history with Martin and initially objects to his return to the task force. Co-starring in the pilot, from 20th TV’s Fox 21, are Steve Harris, Amber Valletta, Rob Mayes, Tina Majorino and Lux Haney Jardine. This marks the second consecutive pilot starring role for Larter at 20th TV, which also cast her as the lead in another CIA drama last season, Fox’s The Asset. Legends is executive produced by Gordon, Nachmanoff, Alex Cary and Jonathan Levin and showrunners Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff.
