Looks like "The Watch", loosely inspired by Terry Pratchett is one and done. Have not heard about any more seasons. I kinda liked it.
They closely follow the book they were based on. "The Watch" mixed story lines, books, times, charactors (not to mention gender swapping), and a whole bunch of stuff that was "inspired" by Pratchett. From the IMdB page, "After the release of the trailer Rhianna Pratchett, daughter of Discworld author Terry Pratchett, commented on Twitter: "Look, I think it's fairly obvious that The Watch shares no DNA with my father's Watch. This is neither criticism nor support. It is what it is". "There are some other pratchett stories on amazon, hogfather and good omens.
We have been watching it through Prime on IMDB. It is free, other than Prime itself, with minimal ads. I watched some of them when I was a kid and they are probably more realistic about the life of a secret agent than the good but glorified Bond type movies.I loved the Prisoner, but never saw Danger Man (Secret Agent Man). I need to binge-watch that series, now!
