"The Librarians" (TV show) is a drama series on TNT that is based on its hit movie franchise "The Librarian." Rebecca Romijn ("X-Men," "King & Maxwell") leads the cast with Noah Wyle ("Falling Skies," "ER") executive-producing and playing a recurring role in the series, reprising his role as Flynn Carsen from TNT's movie trilogy. Christian Kane ("Leverage," "Angel"), Lindy Booth ("Dawn of the Dead," "The Philanthropist") and John Kim ("Neighbors," "The Pacific") round out the cast as the newest protectors of the world's mystical treasures, with Emmy winner John Larroquette ("Night Court," "Deception") playing their reluctant caretaker. Also appearing from the movie trilogy will be Emmy winners Bob Newhart ("The Big Bang Theory," "The Bob Newhart Show") and Jane Curtin ("Kate & Allie," "3rd Rock from the Sun"). And Matt Frewer ("Max Headroom," "Falling Skies") plays a recurring role.

The series centers on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artifacts from around the world. Among the artifacts housed in the Library are the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, the Judas Chalice and Excalibur, to name a few. Only a person with special skills could be responsible for collecting and protecting these artifacts, and more importantly, for preventing them from falling into the wrong hands.

For the past 10 years, Flynn Carsen (Wyle) has served as the Librarian. Prior to taking the job, he was a bookish nerd with 22 academic degrees and absolutely no social skills. As Librarian, however, he managed to use his extraordinary knowledge, successfully recovering ancient artifacts and, in the process, saving the world from unspeakable evil on more than one occasion. Over the last decade he's gone from bookworm to dashing swashbuckler, one of the secret heroes of the hidden world.

As great as Flynn is, the job of Librarian has become more than one person can handle. To aid him in his duties, the Library has recruited four people from around the world, including Eve Baird (Romijn), a highly skilled counter-terrorism agent who is responsible for protecting the group and keeping them all alive; Jake Stone (Kane), an Oklahoma oil worker with an IQ of 190 and an encyclopedic knowledge of art history; Cassandra (Booth), a quirky young woman with the special gift of auditory and sensory hallucinations linked to memory retrieval, known as synesthesia; and Ezekiel Jones (Kim), a master of new technologies and aficionado of old classic crimes who enjoys playing the role of international man of mystery.

Overseeing the new team of Librarians is the somewhat cantankerous Jenkins (Larroquette), an expert in ancient lore who has been working out of the Library's branch office for longer than anyone knows. Together, they must tangle with many adversaries, chief of whom is the Serpent Brotherhood, an ancient cult led by the mysterious immortal Dulaque (Frewer).

"The Librarian" franchise of movies began in 2004 with "The Librarian: Quest for the Spear," which ranked as basic cable's #1 movie of the year. The second installment, "The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines," premiered in 2006 as cable's #1 original movie sequel of all time and placed among the top five movie telecasts of the year. And in 2008, TNT premiered "The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice" to more than 5.7 million viewers.

TNT's "The Librarians" is produced by Electric Entertainment with Dean Devlin, John Rogers and Marc Roskin serving as executive producers.
