‘Treadstone’ Trailer: My God It’s Everyone But Jason Bourne

USA Network has just released the first Treadstone trailer, a spin-off of the Jason Bourne series that will feature absolutely zero Bourne, but probably a whole lot of name dropping.

There’s not much to go on here, besides USA Network teasing this as an event series (so does that mean it will only be one season?). I am interested in following others like Bourne who are unknowingly sleeper agents with a particular set of skills. Now whether Treadstone can drum up any drama worth watching is yet to be seen.

Jeremy Irvine (Paradise Hills) and Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe) are set to headline the ensemble series.

Plot Synopsis:

Treadstone explores the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Treadstone, a covert operation that uses behavior modification protocol to turn its agents into nearly unstoppable superhuman assassins. Jason Bourne, the central character in Universal Pictures’ Bourne film franchise, was a product of the program. The series follows new sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

Treadstone premieres this October on USA Network.

What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this even without Bourne involved?
