Netflix Picks Up Drama 'The Night Agent' Created by Shawn Ryan

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The Night Agent created by Shawn Ryan (The Shield, S.W.A.T.). The first season will produce 10 episodes.

Inspired by the novel by Matthew Quirk, the sophisticated, character-based action-thriller centers on a low-level FBI agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings - until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast-moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office.

Ryan developed the drama, with Seth Gordon set to direct the premiere. They will executive produce with Marney Hochman, Julia Gunn, Jamie Vanderbilt, William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, Nicole Tossou and David Beaubaire. Sony Pictures Television, MiddKid Productions, Exhibit A, Project X and Sunset Lane Media will produce.
