"XIII" (TV show) on ReelzChannel is an original scripted drama with the spy thriller action series starring Stuart Townsend and Aisha Tyler. "XIII" is the story of a man's quest to uncover the truth about his identity. Named for the Roman numeral tattooed on his neck, XIII (Townsend) is a former secret operative who has been stripped of his memory. He does not know who he is, what he is trained to be or whom he serves. Hunted by a dark anti-government organization, XIII searches for clues that will uncover the secret that makes him so valuable — and so potentially dangerous. Jones (Tyler) is a government agent and XIII's most loyal ally. She is also under presidential orders to discover what, if anything, XIII knows.

"XIII" stars Aisha Tyler ("24," "CSI," "The Talk") as Jones, a top CIA operator, Virginie Ledoyen ("The Beach") as Irina, a mercenary hired by the former U.S. President to track XIII, and Bond Girl, Caterina Murino ("Casino Royale") as Sam, XIII's trustworthy ally and love interest. Also starring in "XIII" is Greg Bryk ("Immortals," "Saw 3D: The Final Chapter") as Amos, a national security officer, Stephen McHattie ("Immortals," "2012") as President Carrington and Ted Atherton ("Max Payne," "The Border") as Wally Sharidan, the former U.S. President and a possible traitor. Tom Berenger ("Inception," "Training Day") guest stars as Gerhardt, a mysterious European industrialist who wields power from the shadows.

"XIII" was developed and produced by Jay Firestone's Prodigy Pictures and Luc Besson's French production company EuropaCorp Television ("La Femme Nikita"). The series is based on Jean Van Hamme's adrenaline-fueled graphic novels, which have sold more than 13 million copies worldwide since the first volume was published 25 years ago. "XIII" has already been recognized by the Canadian Society of Cinematographers with its 2012 Award for Excellence for TV Series Cinematography.

Executive producers of "XIII" include Prodigy Pictures' Jay Firestone ("Lost Girl," "La Femme Nikita," "Relic Hunter") and EuropaCorp Television's Edouard De Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros. Showrunner and executive producer Gil Grant ("24," "NCIS: Los Angeles") wrote the pilot episode. Duane Clark ("CSI: NY," "XIII: The Conspiracy") directed three episodes of the season.
