About Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan:
This explosive, globe-trotting thriller finds Marine-turned-rookie CIA analyst Jack Ryan (John Krasinski) sitting behind a desk scrutinizing suspicious financial transactions. Following the money leads Jack and his boss James Greer (Wendell Pierce) to Mousa Bin Suleiman (Ali Suliman), the Syrian-based terrorist mastermind behind a horrific attack in Paris. With assistance from government epidemiologist, Dr. Cathy Mueller (Abbie Cornish) and Suleiman’s wife Hanin (Dina Shihabi), Jack becomes an unexpected hero as he races to stop the extremist from unleashing an insidious assault on U.S. soil. An action-packed thrill ride told in eight heart-stopping episodes, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is an up-to-the-minute reimagining of the iconic American hero’s first foray as a CIA operative.
The Amazon series stars John Krasinski, Abbie Cornish, Wendell Pierce, Ali Suliman, Dina Shihabi, and Amir El-Masry. Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland created the show based on Tom Clancy’s work.
