PATRIOT Releases Today
February 24, 2017 by Mike McNamara
The long-awaited release of PATRIOT is finally here. Critics have praised the ten-episode series from Amazon and now the full first season has been released on Amazon Prime for your viewing pleasure.
In this series from Chicago writer-director Steve Conrad (THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS, THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY), to prevent Iran from going nuclear, intelligence officer John Tavner must forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous "non-official cover" -- that of a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm.
Critics have praised the series to date, with Deadline's Dominic Patten declaring "PATRIOT is a fun and shrewd farce full of surprises throughout. As with so many things of late, you will laugh so hard you’ll cry — in the best way."
The series filmed in and around Chicago, with its home base at Cinespace Studios, throughout the past year, with a cast that stars Michael Dorman, Michael Chernus, Terry O'Quinn alongside Chicago talents the likes of Antoine McKay, Tony Fitzpatrick and Sadieh Rifai.
Enjoy the trailer here then set aside some time this weekend to dig into Season One of PATRIOT.
