Netflix has released the official trailer for The Recruit, the upcoming action spy series starring To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before breakout Noah Centineo in his first solo TV project as the lead. All episodes will be available for streaming on December 16.
The video features an up-and-coming CIA lawyer whose first mission leads him to be involved in dangerous international politics when a former asset threatens to expose the agency’s secrets.
The Recruit is created and executive produced by Alexi Hawley, who is also serving as the showrunner. Joining Centineo are Laura Haddock, Aarti Mann, Colton Dunn, Fivel Stewart, Daniel Quincy Annoh, Kristian Bruun, Vondie Curtis Hall, Byron Mann, Angel Parker, and Kaylah Zander.
“The series centers around Owen Hendricks (Noah Centineo), a young CIA lawyer whose first week on the job turns upside down when he discovers a threatening letter by former asset Max Meladze (Laura Haddock), who plans to expose the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime,” reads the synopsis. “Owen quickly becomes entangled in a dangerous and often absurd world of power politics and mischievous players, as he travels the world in hopes of completing his assignment and making a mark at the CIA.”
The Recruit is executive produced by Centineo, Doug Liman, Gene Klein, and David Bartis on behalf of Hypnotic, Adam Ciralsky, and Charlie Ebersol.
