ReelzChannel has acquired spy thriller action series XIII, starring Stuart Townsend and Aisha Tyler. Named for the Roman numeral tattooed on his neck, XIII (Townsend) is a former secret operative who has been stripped of his memory. Hunted by a dark anti-government organization, XIII searches for clues that will uncover the secret that makes him so valuable—and so potentially dangerous. Jones (Tyler) is a government agent and XIII’s most loyal ally. XIII will premiere in June, following the season finale of ReelzChannel’s first acquired original series, True Justice, starring Steven Seagal. XIII was developed and produced by Jay Firestone’s Prodigy Pictures and Luc Besson’s French production company EuropaCorp Television based on Jean Van Hamme’s adrenaline-fueled graphic novels.
