"The Librarian movies have been a huge success for TNT, and we jumped at the opportunity to build a series around the incredible world Dean Devlin and his creative partners created," said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. "We're especially excited to have such an extraordinary cast behind The Librarians, and we're grateful to have them on board as part of TNT's continued expansion into the action-adventure genre."
Wyle will executive-produce and play a recurring role in the cast, which also includes John Larroquette, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth and John Kim. Original trilogy cast members Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin will also appear.
The 10-episode series is slated to premiere in late 2014.
