In the new TNT action-adventure series Agent X, Sharon Stone will star as Natalie Maccabee, a widow who decides to go into politics following the death of her senator husband.

Ambitious, she rapidly becomes the first female vice president of the United States and discovers that her new position involves a secret mission protecting the Constitution in a major crisis. She will be helped by her chief of staff as well as by a mysterious Agent X.

In development since September 2013, the thriller is produced by William Blake Herron, the renowned big-screen scriptwriter of The Bourne Identity. Jeff Hephner, who starred in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar will be cast as John Case, aka Agent X, the other leading character of the series, whose existence is kept secret even from the President of the United States.

The show will begin in November in the US.

Sharon Stone's first small-screen lead role

Although she appeared in a few small roles (Silver Spoons, The New Mike Hammer, Magnum P.I., T. J. Hooker) early in her career in the 1980s, this is the first time that the Hollywood star will play the main character of a television series.

The opportunity, brought to her by TNT, will allow her to make a prominent comeback in the acting world.

In the past few years, the 1990s legend has been somewhat absent on the silver screen, appearing in small productions like John Turturro's Fading Gigolo in 2013. Cast in What About Love alongside Andy Garcia, Running Wild and Mother's Day with Christina Ricci, Courtney Cox and Susan Sarandon, 2016 should mark her return to the spotlight.

The actress will also continue to work in television. She is one of the cast-members listed for Mosaic, an experimental series directed by Steven Soderbergh for HBO. – AFP Relaxnews
