This Friday, March 29, the eight-episode drama Hanna, based on a 2011 film of the same title, will land on Amazon Prime.
Both action thriller and coming-of-age story, the series stars Esme-Creed Miles as the eponymous character, a teenage girl whose father Erik (Altered Carbon‘s Joel Kinnaman), an ex-CIA operative, teachers her survivalist skills off the grid. The purpose of the intense training: to prepare Hanna to deal with Marissa (Mereille Enos), a CIA agent in hot pursuit.
David Farr, co-writer of the Hanna movie, also wrote and produced the Hanna series. Farr also wrote Amazon’s The Night Manager, which won 2017 Golden Globes for its stars Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Coleman.
Saoirse Ronan, who won a Golden Globe for 2017’s Lady Bird, played Hanna in the original film, which also featured Erik Bana (Bravo’s Dirty John) and two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine, The Aviator).
