Brian Tyree Henry and Kate Mara are set to star in a new drama limited series titled Class of ‘09 for FX, according to Deadline.

  • Class of ‘09 will follow a group of FBI agents who graduated from Quantico in 2009 and are reunited following the death of a mutual friend. Spanning three decades and told across three interweaving timelines, the series examines the nature of justice, humanity and the choices we make that ultimately define our lives and our legacy.
  • The eight-part series will come from Tom Rob Smith, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson and is produced by FX Productions.
  • Henry will play Tayo Miller, one of the most brilliant and unorthodox agents ever to join the Bureau, a man who seeks not merely to make his mark on the institution but to remake it entirely.
  • Mara will play Amy Poet, a woman who never imagined joining the world of law enforcement and finds herself at the center of its most pivotal moment of transformation.
  • Both actors have starred in FX series previously, with Henry appearing in Atlanta and Mara in A Teacher.
  • Smith, who previously wrote the FX limited series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, will write and executive produce the new series.
  • Jacobson and Simpson, who produced American Crime Story, Y: The Last Man and Pose, will also executive produce.

What they’re saying:

  • Gina Balian, President of Original Programming at FX: “Class of ’09 brings together an incredible team of artists who have contributed to several of FX’s most distinctive and successful series from American Crime Story and Pose to Atlanta and A Teacher. With a story from Tom Rob Smith, produced by Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson and starring Brian Tyree Henry and Kate Mara, Class of ’09 is primed to reimagine the course of justice in this unique and timely thriller.”
