"Agent X" (TV show) on TNT is a spirited action-drama starring Jeff Hephner ("Interstellar," "Chicago Fire") and Oscar nominee, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Sharon Stone ("Casino"), and Gerald McRaney ("House of Cards").

In times of extreme crisis, when traditional law and government aren't in a position to help, there is an unseen hand that works to protect this country and its citizens from all manner of threats by any means necessary. Hidden from the view of the public — and even from the President — there is a top secret agent who is trained and ready to serve, deployed only at the careful discretion of the Vice President.

The agent at the center of the series is John Case, played by Hephner. Case is a smooth, athletic, tough and quick-witted operative who can be brutally effective when his duties require it. Stone plays America's first female Vice President, Natalie Maccabee, who pledges to protect the country "against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Honoring this vow, however, will force her and her secret operative to tackle not only global threats but also the palaces of intrigue of Washington D.C. With Case handling high-stakes missions that are too sensitive for the FBI and the CIA, Maccabee soon finds herself being drawn into the action.

McRaney plays Malcolm Millar, the Chief Steward of the Vice President's mansion and the keeper of its many secrets. It is he who reveals to Vice President Maccabee the nature of her special responsibilities and who introduces her to John Case, the man currently assigned to serve as "Agent X."

The cast also includes Jamey Sheridan ("Arrow," "Homeland") as FBI Director Stanton, John Shea ("The Good Wife," "Gossip Girl") as President Thomas Echkart, and Mike Colter ("Million Dollar Baby," "The Good Wife") as Speaker of the House Miles Latham. In addition, James Earl Jones ("The Hunt for Red October," "The Lion King") guest stars in a recurring role as Supreme Court Chief Justice Caleb Thorne.

"Agent X" is produced by TNT Originals in association with Beacon Pictures, with Armyan Bernstein ("Air Force One," "Spy Game," "Children of Men," "Castle") and Sharon Stone serving as executive producers. William Blake Herron ("The Bourne Identity") who also executive-produces, penned the pilot, which was directed by Peter O'Fallon ("Legit," "Suicide Kings").
