'Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan' will premiere on Amazon Prime on August 31st and today we got our first proper taste of what to expect.

Here's the official synopsis:

The series centers on Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. The series follows the titular character as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.

Alongside Krasinski are Wendell Pierce and Abbie Cornish but this is really a one-man show.

The one-hour, eight-episode comes to Amazon Prime this August.
