Hi everyone, Bryan Here….
The former ‘Golden Eye‘ or shall I say Pierce Brosnan is coming back to television to star in AMC’s new series called ‘The Son‘. This will basically be the first time since ‘Remington Steele‘ that Brosnan will be on the small screen, rather than the big screen. This looks to be one of AMC ‘s new flagship shows, as ‘The Son‘ is a multi-generational story of America’s birth as a nation that follows a Texas family’s rise and fall through blood, sweat, and tears, but mostly blood.
Brosnan actually is replacing Sam Neill in the role, since Neill left for personal reasons. ‘The Son‘ is based on the book by Phillipp Meyer, which you can purchase HERE. According to Deadline, Brosnan will play Eli, the head of the McCullough family, but as a child, he was kidnapped by a Comanche Native tribe and raised there. Eli uses the harsh and brutal ideals in his business from day-to-day. In addition, Eli was born on the day that Texas became and independent Republic, which has people calling him ‘First Son of Texas’.
Filming begins in Austin this month with a 10-episode order for the first season, and is set to premiere in 2017. AMC really hasn’t had a bad show, and this one sounds very good. It will be great to see Brosnan take the lead again in this type of rough series. Looking forward to it.
