The Treadstone series is dedicated to agents who have undergone combat training as part of the eponymous program, but who have lost the memory of their training. They live in ignorance of ordinary lives undercover, but everything changes when someone begins to “awaken” them and send them to death missions.
The show is produced by Ben Smith, who worked on Jason Bourne in 2016 and Bourne Evolution with Jeremy Renner.
The first episode of Treadstone was directed by Ramin Bahrani, director of HBO’s 451 degrees Fahrenheit, and Tim Kring was the scriptwriter and showrunner – he worked on the series Communication with Kiefer Sutherland.
In total, 10 episodes are planned in Treadstone.
