The super-tense new Netflix series, The Night Agent follows a low-level FBI agent who works nights in the basement of the White House manning a phone line for undercover spies that never rings. But one day, it does, setting into motion a chain of events uncovering a conspiracy that reaches all the way to the Oval Office.
The series is based on Matthew Quirk’s bestselling novel of the same name. If you like Jack Ryan, Jack Reacher, and Bourne Identity, then The Night Agent is for you!
The Night Agent’s hero is Peter Sutherland (Gabriel Basso), who is described as the least important person working in a very important place. On one fated day, Peter receives a call from terrified civilian Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan) — a tech CEO whose aunt and uncle have been assassinated — which sends both Peter and Rose running for their own lives.
The Night Agent also stars Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eve Harlow, Enrique Murciano, Phoenix Raei, D.B. Woodside and Hong Chau.
