Stargate Universe‘s Brian J. Smith makes his action-packed return to television tonight, with the premiere of USA Network’s Treadstone.
Treadstone is an international action drama, based on the novels by Robert Ludlum. It explores the C.I.A. black-ops organization — the one responsible for the creation of Jason Bourne — when multiple sleeper agents are activated and must deal with their new reality. (No, Matt Damon doesn’t appear in the series.)
Smith plays Doug McKenna, who has been working on an oil rig in the Arctic Ocean when he is activated in order to assassinate a target.
The new show premieres tonight at 10/9c on USA in the United States. Amazon has picked up the show for international distribution, and will stream the show on its SVOD service in over 200 territories starting in January.
Treadstone was shot in Paris, London, Budapest, Berlin, Greece, and Amsterdam. It also stars Tracy Ifeachor, Omar Metwally, Hyo Joo Han, Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Emilia Schüle, Jeremy Irvine, and Michelle Forbes.
