It will follow fictional CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone, which was the program that created superspy Jason Bourne, which played by actor Matt Damon in four films.

The covert program uses behaviour modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins.

The first season of the series will follow sleeper agents across the globe as they are mysteriously "awakened" to resume their deadly missions.

The series is expected to go into production next year.
