The Continental is a chain of hotels located all around the world that function as a neutral territory for members of the criminal underworld. They are frequented by many hitmen and notorious murderers.
The series, which has Albert Hughes set as its lead director, centers on a younger version of Winston Scott and takes place in 1975, when the character is pulled back into a world he thought he’d left behind and takes on a harrowing attempt to seize control of the hotel for assassins that plays a central role in the John Wick films.
Mel Gibson will play a character named Cormac. It’s a rare foray into television for Gibson, who made his acting debut on the Australian television drama series The Sullivans from 1976-1983.
