Patriot follows the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner (Dorman). His latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going nuclear.

Amazon says, “Patriot explores the lesser known, unglamorous aspects of life as an intelligence officer. While the future of the world is at stake, it’s often the idiosyncrasies of those around John Tavner that force him to have to choose between bad alternatives.”
O’Quinn plays Tom Tavner, John’s State Department Director of Intelligence father. Chernus is John’s older brother, Edward Tavner, a young Texas congressman.
John’s wife, Alice, is played by Munroe. Opheim is Agathe, a young homicide detective, who is hot on John’s trail. Smith rounds out the cast as Mr. Claret, John’s stickler of a new “boss” at the piping firm where John is “employed.”
