Deadline is reporting that a new series based on Tom Clancy’s famous Jack Ryan character has landed on Amazon as a straight to series order instead of Amazon’s typical pilot try-out.  The series will bring a modern adaptation to the Jack Ryan character which, through several books, rose from the ranks of a CIA analyst to eventually become President.  Although I was a fan of the earlier Clancy books, the later ones got bogged down by too much outlandish right-wing politics and war-porn (many, many pages describing exactly how a cluster bomb works…I felt dirty).

Four actors have already played the character, it will be interesting to see what direction the fifth actor takes.
