Landmark Media Group to Develop Drama ‘The Operative’

Series to Feature the Father/Son Duo of Craig T. Nelson and Noah Nelson

Landmark Media Group will develop the new international spy drama series “The Operative,” created by writer and producer Noah Nelson. Loosely based on the book “Code Name Stinger” by Harvey Gomberg, “The Operative” will star Craig T. Nelson (the father of Noah Nelson) as the retired intelligence operative John Straw, who career was cut short following the Cold War. Emma, a young analyst sent by the CIA to interview him, and John become allies to stop a cunning enemy.

Screen Media will distribute the series to third-party platforms or through Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment’s Crackle Plus AVoD platforms.

“The Operative demonstrates the caliber of quality content we have focused on creating since forming Landmark last year, and we are extremely proud to be a part of this production,” said Tim Rouhana, Vice President of Development and Production at Landmark. “We are aiming high to create a franchise series that tops the binge-worthy lists, and with the incomparable talents of Noah and Craig on board to bring this series to life, we are confident we will achieve it.”

There is no confirmed platform for “The Operative” at present.
