Interview with HUMANITAS Trustee Howard Gordon


Gordon,-HowardThis fall, TNT will be premiering a new suspense drama series called Legends. Based on the novel by Robert Littell, Legends stars Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, Fellowship of the Ring) as FBI deep-cover agent Martin Odum. Odum’s special ability of transforming himself into a different person for each operation comes back to haunt him when a person he encounters suggests to him that he isn’t “quite who he believes himself to be.” The series was created by Fringe’s David Wilcox with Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24, The X-Files), Alexander Cary (Homeland, Lie to Me) and Jonathan Levin (Charmed) and Brad Turner (24).

Much of the cast and the entire creative team of Legends descended upon San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con. San Diego’s airport and several downtown buildings are decorated with Sean Bean’s image, and although he was not among the cast at Comic-Com, his presence certainly loomed large over the area!

We were joined in the pressroom by the cast and creative team of the new series; executive producer Howard Gordon was fresh from the 24 panel, and displayed an iPhone image of Kiefer Sutherland sporting a black t-shirt with the Legends hashtag, “#DontKillSeanBean,” which led to an interesting exchange before the topic turned to Legends itself.
