Sean Bean Takes Aim In New Legends Trailer

As we head into the summer season, we're slowly approaching the premiere of Legends, a new crime drama that will put Sean Bean back in the small screen in a starring role. As the new trailer indicates, the truth is up for grabs, but not nearly as easy to grasp as say, a gun.

Executive produced by Howard Gordon, Alexander Cary, Jonathan Levin, Brad Turner and David Wilcox (showrunner), Legends is based on Robert Littell's novel Legends: A Novel of Dissimulation and centers on Sean Bean's Martin Odum, an undercover FBI agent with the ability to transform himself into a different person for each assignment. But he eventually begins to wonder about his own identity when a mysterious stranger suggests that he isn't the man he thinks he is.

The new trailer continues to tease the mystery surrounding this story and Sean Bean's character. And there's also a lot of gun-pointing going on...

Sean Bean doesn't have the best track record with characters who manage to stick around, but hopefully Martin Odum will be a survivor! He certainly seems well armed. In addition to Sean Bean, the cast of Legends includes Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, Amber Valletta and Mason Cook.

In addition to returning summer shows like Falling Skies (June 22) and Rizzoli and Isles (returned June 17) and Perception (returned June 17), Legends joins fellow newcomers to TNT this summer, including Murder in the First (premiered June 9) and The Last Ship (premieres June 22) . But we have a little while to wait to see Sean Bean's identity crises play out. Legends will premiere Wednesday, August 13 at 9:00 p.m. ET on TNT.
