The first female US President Sally Sheridan is shot dead by a sniper during her Veterans Day speech. Her assassin narrowly escapes the scene with his life, national security hot on his heels - or so it seems. Three months later, an elderly couple discover the body of a wounded man in a tree, wearing a parachute. The young man (Dorff) cannot remember the slightest thing about his own identity. The only clue is a tattoo on his neck, "XIII". Meanwhile, in the Whitehouse, government intelligence is still conducting the search for the President's killer. With the elections just weeks away, a confirmed suspect could swing the vote for the administration. Hours after XIII's location is picked up by covert intelligence, elite special ops forces are swarming the couple's house in Cape Fear. Running on adrenaline and instinct, XIII tactically takes out the soldiers one by one. On the run, clinging to one desperate clue after another, XIII begins to piece back his life, fragments of his memory ... Written by
I haven't read all the comments, but doesn't it appear that the whole miniseries was a pilot for a potential TV series? It appears that someone looked at the incredible success of "24", and said, "Yeah, I want me some of that!" I can see it now, every week, Tanner digs into one more member of the conspiracy, probably killing him JUST before he is able to extract the name of the next conspirator up the line. Of course, he'll have to have a love interest, so I guess Sam better stock up on condoms and clean sheets! Periodically, Sam will be kidnapped in an effort to capture Tanner, etc. etc etc. I could so write this stuff! If anyone in Hollywood is reading this, I AM available for a modest six-figure salary!
