TNT has announced that it is going to turn its TV movie trilogy, The Librarian, into a TV series.
ER's Noah Wyle starred in the trilogy as Flynn Carsen, the sworn protector of the world's mythical treasures and will recur in the series as well as serve as a Executive Producer along with Dean Devlin (The Librarian, Leverage) and John Rogers (Leverage).
What does this mean for Falling Skies, Noah Wyle's current series?
As both shows will air on TNT, scheduling will be worked out so he can work on both Falling Skies AND The Librarian.
Wyle, Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin will be recurring, reprising their previous roles from the Librarian franchise, which leaves the door open to introduce some new cast members. Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, King & Maxwell), Christian Kane (Leverage, Angel), Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead, The Philanthropist) and John Kim (Neighbors, The Pacific) will star in the series as the new artifact protectors, with with Emmy-winner John Larroquette (Night Court) slated to play their reluctant caretaker.
Matt Frewer, co-starred on Falling Skies with Noah Wyle, will recur as the show's villain.
