Legends Season 1

If you thought your day was jam-packed with drama from tiring commutes to hectic works days – you may reconsider after watching the series premiere of TNT’s upcoming series, “Legends.”

And luckily for action-seeking fans, we've got the whole scoop and nothing but the scoop of what viewers can expect before the show makes it’s nail-biting debut on Wednesday, August 13 at 9/8c – straight from the Executive Producer’s mouth!

During the third season of the ATX Festival, held in Austin, Texas, Brad Turner explained that the summer series (based on Robert Littell’s book “Legends: A Novel of Dissimulation”) will radiate a “24”-esque vibe throughout the series. That’s probably because the “Legends” EP was one of the directors responsible for the shenanigans Jack Bauer found himself in during the serialized drama.  So, if you love clock-ticking, heart-stopping drama, then “Legends” is the show for you!

What can viewers expect to go down during the premiere of “Legends”? Well, the episode will open up with a nail-biting scene that will surround everyone’s favorite “Game of Thrones” character Ned Stark. Yep, that’s right! Sean Bean will be starring in the upcoming drama as Martin Odum. And according to Turner, the former “GoT” actor will be keeping his head. Phew! That’s a relief.

“He was excited to play a role he didn’t have to die in,” the EP quipped. But just because Bean’s noggin is safe – for now – doesn’t mean he won’t be close to losing it throughout “Legends.” Bean’s character will encounter his fair share of life or death drama as the series unfolds.
