Charlie Cox will finally make a return to Netflix by starring in the upcoming spy thriller Treason. The official Treason trailer for the limited drama has been published, showcasing our first footage of Charlie Cox’s character Adam Lawrence.
“Thirty-six hours ago, an attempt was made to kill the chief of MI6,” the trailer’s opening line reads. Following the attempt on the chief’s life, his deputy is elevated in the chain of command to take his place. Move onward. Cox’s Adam Lawrence is a young, inexperienced father, but the job needs to be done. With a politician appearing to be blackmailed to drop out of a race, it becomes apparent that the conspiracy to assassinate the chief is a component of a broader malicious thought process. Adam’s superior cautions him, “This is a dangerous period,” while also implying that many others at the agency will question his competency.
Things for Adam Lawrence quickly start to go south. A Russian ex-girlfriend from his past, Kara (Olga Kurylenko), shows up, and the CIA believes he has been compromised. Adam’s top job appears to have been secured by Kara’s manipulation, and she is currently in town to claim her reward. All of this comes to a climax when Adam is accused of betraying his country, his family is threatened by unidentified forces, and his wife no longer believes in his innocence. I am not a double spy, he adamantly declares.
Matt Charman, who wrote and executive produced Bridge of Spies, wrote and produced Treason. Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Black Widow) and Oona Chaplin, two previously announced female roles, will be appearing alongside Charlie Cox and Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones). Treason is being executive produced by Foz Allan and Valery Ryan, and it is being directed by Louise Hooper (The Witcher). Binocular Productions is the production company. CHECK OUT THE TRAILER HERE:
