"Patriot" (TV show) is a drama series on Amazon.

The cast includes Michael Dorman ("Wonderland"), Emmy winner Terry O'Quinn ("Lost"), Kurtwood Smith ("That 70's Show") and Michael Chernus ("Manhattan Project").

The series follows the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner (Dorman). His latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going nuclear, requiring him to forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous "non-official cover" — that of a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm. A bout with PTSD, the Federal government's incompetence and the intricacies of keeping a day job in the "front" industrial piping company cause a barrage of ever-escalating fiascos that jeopardize Tavner's mission.

The series explores the lesser known, unglamorous aspects of life as an intelligence officer. While the future of the world is at stake, it's often the idiosyncrasies of those around John Tavner that force him to have to choose between bad alternatives. Those characters include Tom Tavner (O'Quinn), John's State Department Director of Intelligence father; John's older brother Edward Tavner (Chernus), a young Texas congressman; John's wife Alice, played by Kathleen Munroe ("Call Me Fitz"); Agathe, played by Aliette Opheim ("Sandor slash Ida"), a brilliant young homicide detective from Luxembourg hot on John's trail; and Mr. Claret (Smith), John's stickler of a new "boss" at the piping firm where John is "employed."

"Patriot" is produced by Amazon Studios. The series is executive produced by Steven Conrad ("The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"), who also writes and directs, James Parriott ("Grey's Anatomy"), Glenn Ficarra ("This Is Us"), John Requa ("Crazy Stupid Love," "Focus"), Charles Gogolak ("Focus"), and Gil Bellows ("Temple Grandin").
