Amazon is jumping into development on a series that will focus on human rights lawyer Jared Genser, and Orlando Bloom is attached to executive produce.
The series has no title, but the story is inspired by Genser and his firm, who work to “free prisoners of conscience (Human Rights prisoners) in high-risk areas throughout the world’s most difficult Hot Zones.”
According to the official description shared for the series, “the core team is comprised of specialized operatives with years of experience in the field. There are no guidelines. No two extractions are the same. Only precise, strategic decision making. Many of these life-saving extractions have been widely covered in international press, so much so that The New York Times deemed Jared ‘The Extractor.’”
The producers are currently on the hunt for writers to take on the series. This sounds like the kind of show that I’d enjoy watching. I love these kinds of stories.
