"Jason Bourne: Treadstone"



According to USA Network, a full season of "Treadstone", focusing on the deep state, 'CIA black ops' organization from the "Jason Bourne" movies, will go straight to series, with production starting in 2019:


"...'Treadstone' will focus on the exploits of 'Operation Treadstone', the program responsible for turning 'Jason Bourne' into a bone-cracking super spy. The first season is reported to follow various other sleeper agents as they're awakened to resume their missions..."


Formed after the Viet Nam war, 'Treadstone' was a top-secret black ops program of the 'Central Intelligence Agency' (CIA), using
 a behavior-modification program to break down morality, while recruiting 'US Service' members to turn them into superhuman assassins, in direct response to the 'Congressional Act' which banned the US from partaking in extra-judicial killings.


'Jason Bourne' appeared in 3 novels by author Robert Ludlum, with a follow-up series, written by Eric Van Lustbader starting in 2004.


Lustbader's "The Bourne Nemesis" was released earlier this year.
