So I think I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I actually didn’t see a trailer for this show until today. I guess I don’t watch enough TNT? Anyway, it seems that the network is going to take the Librarian TV movies they had made with Noah Wyle and turn the project into a full fledged TV series.
For those unfamiliar with the movies, The Librarian is sort of an supernatural Indiana Jones figure, or more accurately an Indiana Jones like character who often ends up dealing with supernatural relics. And yes, the movies are as ridiculous and fun as they sound. To say the least, I am really excited for this to become a TV series.
To flesh out the cast, it appears that Rebecca Romijn will be involved in the series, and from the trailer it looks like she’s some sort of handler for Wyle and the other new recruit characters who are also on the team. Stana Katic, who appeared as a vampire in one of the Librarian movies, also appeared in some brief clips in the trailer. It’s possible that those were reels from the movie, but hopefully she will be reprising her role in this series, even if it’s only once in awhile.
The Librarians will be hitting TNT on December 7th, and I can’t wait to see what the creators are able to do with the setting in the longer context of a series where there is more time to develop characters and plots.
