TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at TNT’s new drama series The Librarians.
The Librarians centers on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artifacts from around the world. The organisation consists of Caretaker Jenkins (John Larroquette) and Librarian Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle), who has recruited four people to aid him in his task. Those four are Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), Jake Stone (Christian Kane), Cassandra (Lindy Booth) and Ezekiel Jones (John Kim).
The hour-long series is produced by Electric Entertainment and is envisioned as a follow up to TNT’s Librarian film franchise, which is slated to air this Fall. Said franchise consisted of three films (The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines and The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice) which starred Falling Skies alum Noah Wyle and aired between 2004 and 2008.
