Fox is reportedly developing an event TV series based on “The Expendables” film franchise. Sylvester Stallone will executive produce alongside regular “Expendables” producer Avi Lerner and “NCIS” veteran Shane Brennan.
Brennan will serve as show runner and will write the series alongside Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward. The aim with the event series is to do for old TV action heroes what the films did for old movie action heroes, and the tone is said to be a fun action drama.
There is no cast attached or approached yet, but there’s a lot of potential candidates for that list – Tom Selleck, David Hasselhoff, Richard Dean Anderson, Scott Bakula, Jeffrey Donovan, Lucy Lawless, Jennifer Garner, Kiefer Sutherland, etc.
A fourth and fifth instalment in the film series, along with a female-centric offshoot, are in various stages of development.
