Yet the network’s latest drama to fall under the aegis of producer Shonda Rhimes mostly just feels tired, like a TNT caper show that futilely seeks to derive energy from visual gimmicks, like split screens and slo-mo.
As a consequence, despite the show’s modest charms, when faced with the more pressing question, “Are you eager to watch?
,” the answer is one that “The Catch” pretty well fumbles.
The new iteration of “Jack Ryan” comes from the “Lost” duo of co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland, with Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes and Skydance Media also on board to produce.
Roland will executive produce, along with Lindsey Springer of Carlton Cuse Productions, Platinum Dunes’ Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and Mace Neufeld.
He is best known for his pioneering work in rock, ambient, pop, and electronic music.
