Based on Thomas Perry’s bestselling novel of the same name, “The Old Man” centers on “Dan Chase” (Jeff Bridges), who fled the CIA decades ago and has been living off the grid ever since. When an assassin arrives and attempts to take out Chase, the old agent learns that to secure his future, he must now reconcile his past.
With Dan Chase chased from hiding, FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence “Harold Harper” (John Lithgow) is called in to hunt him down due to his complicated past with the rogue fugitive. Alongside Harper are her protege “Angela Adams” (Alia Shawkat) and CIA Special Agent “Raymond Waters” (EJ Bonilla). When Chase proves harder to apprehend than authorities expected, “Julian Carson” (Gbenga Akinnagbe), a highly trained special ops contractor, is also sent to pursue him. While on the run, Chase rents a room from “Zoe McDonald” (Amy Brenneman) who taps into reserves she never knew she had to survive the day she learns the truth about her new tenant. Bill Heck, Leem Lubany and Pej Vahdat also star in the drama series.
Teleplay and created for television by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine, “The Old Man” is produced by Warren Littlefield, Steinberg, Dan Shotz, Levine, Jeff Bridges, David Schiff and Jon Watts, who also directed the first two episodes . The series is produced by 20thTelevision in association with The Littlefield Company.
