Ken Bruen’s “The Guards” Airs Tonight!

It’s in Ireland!

DRAMA: Jack Taylor – Ken Bruen – The Guards- TV Pilot

On: TV3

Date: Monday 2nd August 2010

Time: 21:00 to 22:45 (1 hour and 45 minutes long)

This exciting feature length Tv movie premiere is the first in a series of Jack Taylor novels brought to the screen by Magma Productions. It follows the exploits of tough ex cop Jack Taylor, played brilliantly by renowned Scottish actor Iain Glen (Law and Order, Tara Road and Resident Evil). When Jack is asked to find a distraught mother’s missing daughter, he uncovers the seedy underbelly of Galway City. Adding to his woes, an old friend dies under mysterious circumstances, everything Jack believes in begins to unravel making him question even those closest to him.

I peeked at the trailer and was surprised to see Jack looks nothing like I imagined:

He looks much seedier!

I’ve forgotten Bruen’s original description of Jack, but I thought he had dark hair, not sandy.

At any rate, this looks damned good.

Don’t let me down, Internet!

If you haven’t yet, go read Ken Bruen‘s great books. The first in his Jack Taylor series is The Guards. (Kindle, Nook — Sony no longer has it and I don’t know why.)
