CHARACTER PHOTOS & SPOTLIGHT ON NEW ADVENTURE TV SERIES 'THE LIBRARIANS' WITH REBECCA ROMIJN, CHRISTIAN KANE, JOHN KIM, LINDY BOOTH, JOHN LARROQUETTE

'THE LIBRARIANS' TV SERIES
REBECCA ROMIJN AND CHRISTIAN KANE LEAD NEW TV ADVENTURE
Yesterday I presented you with historical epic series MARCO POLO and today we're spotlighting another series which starts its small screen life next month - THE LIBRARIANS! This adventure show will start airing December 7th at TNT! The spinoff from the TV movies, which starred Noah Wyle, will see gorgeous Rebecca Romijn taking over the lead role in ten episodes!

FILING EVIL UNDER HISTORY
For the past 10 years, Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) has served as the Librarian. Prior to taking the job, he was a bookish nerd with 22 academic degrees and absolutely no social skills. As Librarian, however, he managed to use his extraordinary knowledge, successfully recovering ancient artefacts and, in the process, saving the world from unspeakable evil on more than one occasion. Over the last decade he’s gone from bookworm to dashing swashbuckler, one of the secret heroes of the hidden world.
THE LIBRARIAN SUPERTEAM
 As great as Flynn is, the job of Librarian has become more than one person can handle. To aid him in his duties, the Library has recruited four people from around the world, including Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), a highly skilled counter terrorism agent who is responsible for protecting the group and keeping them all alive; Jake Stone (Christian Kane), an Oklahoma oil worker with an IQ of 190 and an encyclopaedic knowledge of art history; Cassandra (Lindy Booth), a quirky young woman with the special gift of auditory and sensory hallucinations linked to memory retrieval, known as synaesthesia; and Ezekiel Jones (John Kim), a master of new technologies and aficionado of old classic crimes who enjoys playing the role of international man of mystery. Overseeing the new team of Librarians is the somewhat cantankerous Jenkins (John Larroquette), an expert in ancient lore who has been working out of the Library’s branch office for longer than anyone knows. Together, they must tangle with many adversaries, chief of whom is the Serpent Brotherhood, an ancient cult led by the mysterious immortal Dulaque (Matt Frewer).

    1. I do expect it to be mild and sweet, you know, so that families could watch it together, nothing gritty. We need such shows, UK style :)

    3. yep, we usually have those only over in UK, MERLIN and current ATLANTIS are such light-hearted shows without anything shocking and indecent

  2. I have never been this excited about a new series as I am about The Librarians. Christian Kane is my favorite actor and singer, so I have been anxiously counting the days. All the promos for this have been hilarious. The team seems to have great chemistry. I am glad to have a fun show that the whole family can watch together.

  5. "Librarians" and "adventure" aren't usually related concepts, LOL -- what's this world coming to? I love John Larroquette though and he looks great in the trailer.

  6. Another great family show from Dean Devlin. It will have great dialog, comedy and action. Loved his show Leverage which also starred Christian Kane.

  7. Nobody but me probably remembers Christian Kane from the series Angel. He was on a show right before that called Fame L.A. I LOVED that show, but it didn't last very long! He's a very talented singer.

  10. I bet librarians have more adventure than most of us. I read a quote somewhere once. It said "I feel sorry for those who don't read because they only get to experience one life" or something to that effect. But it's so true! I love, love, love getting lost in a good book. I bet this will be a great show!

    1. yep, that is why I love translating and I'm sad that that career is probably over for me :( It gave me a chance to visit so many different places and cultures from US, UK to ancient Greece, Rome, India, Germany. China.... truly rare are the professions which give so much insight

  11. I like the trailer quite a lot as it has a lot of humour in it. Having something light weight and easy to watch would be a real treat during the dark days of Winter.
