Michael Fassbender to Star in Paramount+ Spy Drama ‘The Agency’ 5

Paramount+’s spy thriller The Agency has found its lead spy.

Michael Fassbender will star in the espionage thriller (formerly titled The Department), which is based on the French series Le Bureau des Legendes and has started production. The two-time Oscar nominee will also serve as an executive producer of the show, which will stream on the platform’s Paramount+ with Showtime tier.

The series from Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios earned a straight-to-series order at Showtime in February 2023, before the premium cable outlet was effectively folded into Paramount+. George Clooney and Grant Heslov are executive producing the show; Jez and John-Henry Butterworth are writing all 10 episodes, and Joe Wright will direct the first two installments.

Fassbender will play a CIA agent who’s ordered to abandon his undercover life and return to London Station. When the love he left behind reappears, romance reignites. His career, his real identity and his mission are pitted against his heart, hurling them both into a deadly game of international intrigue and espionage.

More to come.
