‘Condor’ Reboot From Michael Dinner Coming to DirecTV (Exclusive)

Project will be a new take on ”Six Days of the Condor,“ a Washington espionage novel later adapted as Robert Redford suspense feature

“Six Days of the Condor” will fly yet another day, this time on DirecTV.

The classic 1974 spy novel by James Grady will be remade as a TV series from director Michael Dinner, known for his work on “Justified,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Masters of Sex” and other shows.

The book was adapted into “Three Days of the Condor,” a 1975 hit starring Robert Redford (pictured) and directed by Sydney Pollack.

“Condor” tells the story of a low-level CIA employee who returns from lunch to discover that everyone in his office has been killed. On the run, the employee becomes ensnared in a web of intrigue involving higher-ups.

Skydance Television and MGM are partnering on the DirecTV production. The satellite provider has ordered 10 episodes; no cast or premiere date yet.

DirecTV will air “Condor” on its in-house Audience Network.
