While there are no apparent plans currently for any more Jason Bourne adventures, that doesn’t mean that the universe it inhabits has gone quiet. Cue TV series Treadstone.

It’s been created by Tim Kring, and if that name rings any bells he’s the guy who gave us Crossing Jordan and Heroes.

Treadstone is set to deliver us all the action of the covert CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone, which uses behavior-modification protocol to turn recruits into near-superhuman assassins. We’re promised the stories of sleeper agents from all over the globe who are activated to carry out deadly missions.

The 10-episode “event” series hits US screens in October.
