Based on the graphic novels by Jean Van Hamme, XIII is the story of a man’s quest to uncover the truth about his identity. Named for the Roman numeral tattooed on his neck, XIII is a former secret operative who has been stripped of his memory. He does not know who he is, what he is trained to be or whom he serves. Hunted by a dark anti-government organization, XIII searches for clues that will uncover the secret that makes him so valuable—and so potentially dangerous. Jones is a government agent and XIII’s most loyal ally. She is also under Presidential orders to discover what, if anything, XIII knows.
XIII stars Aisha Tyler as Jones, a top CIA operator, Virginie Ledoyen as Irina, a mercenary hired by the former U.S. President to track XIII, Caterina Murino as Sam, XIII’s trustworthy ally and love interest, Greg Bryk as Amos, a national security officer, Stephen McHattie as President Carrington and Ted Atherton as Wally Sharidan, the former U.S. President and a possible traitor. The series is produced by Jay Firestone’s Prodigy Pictures and Luc Besson’s French production company EuropaCorp Television.
