The Night Agent is a series created by Shawn Ryan starring Gabriel Basso. It is based on the novel by Matthew Quirk.
A call, an FBI agent and a conspiracy: the elements of the thriller are defined in just ten minutes.
About the Series
And the fact is that The Night Agent is a series that is not in the least misleading: a protagonist dedicated to good and an action script structure that jumps from one scene to another in a series that knows which strings to pluck and simply acts accordingly.
Absolutely nothing bad, but nothing that will be surprising either. A series with the tension of a John Grisham (without lawyers) in literature, close to Jack Ryan, although more devoted to intrigue and suspense than to action.
The Hollywood industry draws on what it knows best, from the well-executed suspense thriller, with its rhythm, the structured script, sometimes vacuous, but effective … a quality series which, from the first moment, is very clear about where it is going and what its intentions are, and that, without being deceptive at any time, offers a phenomenal piece of entertainment based on the same old format, with quality in the production, editing, sound and acting.
Professional, effective, entertaining, but a success? Certainly – it was born with that sole intention.
And it deserves it, at least in the technical aspects.
Does it take any risks in order to offer us a new aesthetic or to regenerate the genre? Not at all.
