‘The Night Agent’ Trailer Sees Gabriel Basso Answer the Emergency Telephone!! Check It Out!!

Netflix has released a new trailer for The Night Agent, an upcoming thriller series starring Gabriel Basso and Luciane Buchanan. Based on the book of the same name by Matthew Quirk, the series is created by Timeless showrunner Shawn Ryan with MiddKid Productions.

The trailer introduces us to Peter Sutherland (Basso), an FBI agent who single-handedly saves the lives of hundreds of people during a simple train ride. Thanks to his keen eyes, Peter realizes someone planted a bomb in the train, which allows him to stop the vehicle and guide its passengers to safety just in time. Thanks to his heroic actions, Peter gets a job in the White House, where he’s tasked with manning an emergency telephone in the basement. It’s tedious work, as the phone never rings. And even if it rang, Peter’s job is just to redirect essential calls to the team who’s actually charged with solving problems.

One evening, Peter receives a call from a desperate civilian, Rose Larkin (Buchanan). Rose is being attacked by a masked killer when she calls Peter, leading the agent to rush to her home and save her. After that, Peter is tasked with protecting Rose at all costs while getting involved with a deep conspiracy surrounding people in high positions of power inside the White House itself.

The new The Night Agent trailer shows how Peter and Rose must fight for their lives as assassins follow them everywhere they go. Besides featuring thrilling action set pieces, the trailer also promises the series will feed on the audience’s paranoia, as there’s no one Peter and Rose can trust while trying to find the truth.
