Hephner stars as John Case, a smooth, athletic top secret agent hidden from the public and the president, who is deployed only at the discretion of the vice president. Stone plays Natalie Maccabee, the nation's first female VP. The series follows Maccabee and Case as they tackle global threats as well as issues within Washington, D.C., handling cases that are too sensitive for the FBI and CIA.
"Agent X is a perfect fit for TNT's expanding lineup of action-dramas," TNT's Senior Vice President Lillah McCarthy said in a statement. "It's a slick, high-energy thrill-ride with lots of twists and turns, big action sequences and kick-ass stunts."
TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the show's first season, which will premiere in 2015.
Hephner's TV credits include Chicago Fire and The O.C., and he can also be seen in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Stone, who recurred on Law & Order: SVU four years ago, will also serve as an executive producer on the show, along with Armyan Bernstein (Air Force One, Castle) and William Blake Herron (The Bourne Identity).
