‘The Operative:’ Craig T. Nelson Plans Return to TV as an International Spy

Landmark Studio Group has announced that it is developing “The Operative,” an international spy drama series that will star Craig T. Nelson.

Per Landmark, Nelson will play a retired intelligence operative named John Straw, who was mysteriously forced to end his career following The Cold War but re-emerges to warn of an upcoming attack on American soil. A young analyst named Emma, sent by the CIA to interview him about his claims, uncovers that John is full of stories, some pointing to a decades-old conspiracy with ties to the Kremlin. In her search for the truth, Emma and John soon become allies as they work together to try to stop a skilled, cunning, and formidable enemy before it’s too late.
