CHICAGO – Jack Reacher is back, in a binge-worthy TV miniseries premiering on February 4th, 2022, streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Portraying the iconic character, which debuted in a book series beginning in 1997 and adapted into a couple of high profile films, is actor Alan Ritchson. The series story is from the first novel (by Lee Child) in the Reacher series, “The Killing Floor.”

Jack Reacher (Ritchson) gets off a bus in the town of Margrave, Georgia, searching for remnants of his favorite blues musician. Since he is a stranger in town, he is arrested at a local diner for a murder he didn’t commit. But because of his background in military police investigations, he joins forces with local law enforcement, represented by Detective Finley (Malcolm Goodwin) and Office Roscoe (Willa Fitzgerald), to solve the crime.
