TORONTO (July 30, 2014) – Martin Odum lives a life in shadows, but he is the one that’s in the dark. This summer, Bravo plunges into a terrifying mystery of identity and espionage in the gritty new drama LEGENDS, premiering exclusively in Canada Wednesday, Aug. 27 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo. Based on the award-winning book by novelist Robert Littell, and from the executive producers of HOMELAND and 24, LEGENDS stars Sean Bean (GAME OF THRONES) as Martin Odum, an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. Ali Larter (HEROES) stars as Crystal McGuire, a fellow operative who has a history with Martin. For a sneak peek at LEGENDS, click here.

In LEGENDS, Odum has the uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job, transforming from a Serbian extremist to a corrupt Chicago police officer overnight. However, he begins to question his own identity when a mysterious stranger suggests that he isn’t the man he believes himself to be.
Following recent appearances at the Television Critics Association tour and San Diego Comicon, LEGENDS has generated insurmountable social chatter with the #dontkillseanbean hashtag, homage to the grisly demise many of his past characters have met to date.
In the series premiere of LEGENDS, deep cover agent Martin Odum (Bean) returns to the FBI after an assignment infiltrating the Citizen’s Army of Virginia (CAV), a domestic terrorist organization. He tries to re-connect with his estranged wife and son, put his life back together, and get the last “legend” behind him, but when the CAV announces an eminent attack, Martin must go back under in order to stop them. Also, a mysterious stranger confronts Martin to tell him that his whole life may be a deep cover legend and that everything he thinks he knows is a lie.
LEGENDS also stars Morris Chestnut (AMERICAN HORROR STORY) as Tony Rice, a smart, quick-witted and charming DCO agent; Tina Majorino (GREY’S ANATOMY) as Maggie Harris, the newest member of the DCO team; Steve Harris (THE PRACTICE) as Nelson Gates, the director of the DCO Task Force; and Amber Valletta (REVENGE) as Sonya Odum, Martin's ex-wife; and Mason Cook (The Lone Ranger) as Martin's pre-teen son, Aiden.
LEGENDS is produced by Fox 21, with Howard Gordon (HOMELAND, 24), Alexander Cary (HOMELAND, LIE TO ME) and Jonathan Levin (CHARMED), Brad Turner (24), and showrunner David Wilcox (FRINGE) serving as executive producers.
