Jack Reacher series adaptation greenlit by Amazon Studios
A Jack Reacher drama series has been greenlit by Amazon Studios, Deadline has confirmed. The show will be based on the character from Lee Child’s best-selling global book series.
The series will be written and showrun by Nick Santora (Scorpion, Prison Break). The first season will apparently be based on The Killing Floor, the first Jack Reacher novel in Child’s series.
“Lee Child has created an incredible character and world; it will be the goal of every writer, producer, actor, executive and crew member to capture the essence of Mr. Child’s books – and luckily Lee has been there, and will continue to be there, to help guide us along the way in this series. He is the pulse of Reacher,” said Santora.
“It’s been great so far, but really, the fun starts here. By now I know these guys, and Reacher is in the perfect hands, believe me,” added Child.
The series will be produced by Amazon Studios, Skydance Television, and Paramount Television studios. Santora will executive produce the series. Executive producers also include Child, Don Granger, Scott Sullivan and Christopher McQuarrie, with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross exec producing for Skydance. Carolyn Harris will oversee the project for Skydance.
