The To All the Boys franchise star will play the lead role and executive produce a drama series set at the CIA. The eight-episode show comes from Entertainment One, Doug Liman’s Hypnotic and creator and showrunner Alexi Hawley (The Rookie).
The untitled series centers on a young lawyer at the CIA (Centineo) who gets entangled in dangerous international power plays when a former agency asset threatens to expose her relationship with the CIA — unless they help clear her name in a serious crime.
The series will continue Centineo’s relationship with Netflix, where he’s appeared in all three To All the Boys films as well as Sierra Burgess Is a Loser and The Perfect Date. He’s currently filming the DC Comics movie Black Adam opposite Dwayne Johnson for New Line.
The CIA project also brings Netflix and eOne together again; the streamer and studio are developing an expansive set of films and movies based on C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia books.
Hawley will executive produce with Centineo and Hypnotic’s Liman, Gene Klein and David Bartis.
Centineo is repped by CAA, Definition Entertainment, Myman Greenspan and Narrative.
