Seven months after TNT first announced their new series The Librarians, the network has released the first trailer, revealing that the 10-episode series will kick off with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, December 7th.
Based on The Librarian TV movie trilogy starring Noah Wyle, The Librarians stars Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth and John Kim as the new protectors of the world's mystical treasures, alongside John Larroquette as their reluctant caretaker.
Noah Wyle reprises his role from the original movies as Flynn Carsen, who, for the past 10 years, 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 the Librarian, however, he managed to use his extraordinary knowledge, successfully recovering ancient artifacts 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.
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 to defend the Library from dark magic, including Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), a highly skilled counter-terrorism agent who is responsible for protecting the group and keeping them all alive; Jacob Stone (Christian Kane), an Oklahoma oil worker with an IQ of 190 and an encyclopedic knowledge of art history; Cassandra Cillian (Lindy Booth), a quirky young woman with the special gift of auditory and sensory hallucinations linked to memory retrieval, known as synesthesia; 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 who has sticky fingers.
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).
