Treadstone is an American action drama television series, connected to and based on the Bourne film series. A “special preview” of the pilot aired on USA Network on September 24, 2019, ahead of its October 15, 2019 premiere. The series was created by Tim Kring, who is also expected to executive produce alongside Ramin Bahrani, Ben Smith, Jeffrey Weiner, Justin Levy, Bradley Thomas, and Dan Friedkin.
Treadstone explores “the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Operation Treadstone—a covert program that uses behavior-modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. The series follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously ‘awakened’ to resume their deadly missions”. The program breaks down these assassins’ personalities, erases their memories, and eliminates their moral code so they can effectively kill targets around the world.
The series explores Treadstone’s legacy and begins in an East Berlin incident that transpires in 1973. This involves John Randolph Bentley (Jeremy Irvine), one of the program’s agents, who escapes his Soviet captors. The story then zooms to the present day, following a group of assets being “activated” by force or awakened after a moment of high tension.
On April 12, 2018, it was announced that USA Network had given the production a pilot order. The episode was written by Tim Kring and expected to be directed by Ramin Bahrani, both of whom were also set to act as executive producers alongside Ben Smith, Jeffrey Weiner, Justin Levy, and Bradley Thomas.
Production companies involved with the pilot were slated to consist of Universal Cable Productions, Captivate Entertainment, and Imperative Entertainment. On August 16, 2018, it was reported that USA Network had decided to forego the pilot process and instead were issuing the production a straight-to-series order. Additionally, it was reported that Dan Friedkin was joining the series as an executive producer.
