A new action thriller series is making its way to Netflix this spring. The Night Agent, based on the novel by Matthew Quirk, is coming to television courtesy of The Shield's Shawn Ryan. The series tells the story of low-level FBI Agent whose main job is to sit in the basement of the White House and watching over a phone that never rings. Eventually, that phone does ring, and puts the agent in the middle of a wild and dangerous conspiracy.
All 10 episodes of The Night Agent's debut season will arrive on Netflix on March 23rd. While that date is still a couple of weeks away, the first footage is already here. You can watch the full trailer for The Night Agent below!
