THE A-TEAM Returning To Television

A small screen revival of Stephen J. Cannell’s 80s TV series ‘The A-Team’ is in the works over at 20th Century Fox with Chris Morgan producing.

Like the original, the rebooted series revolves around four Special Forces operatives who, after being court-martialed “for a crime they didn’t commit,” escape from military prison and set out to clear their names. While still on the run, they work as soldiers of fortune. According to Deadline, the revamped series will feature a mixed-gender team.

‘Fast and Furious’ screenwriter Morgan will produce the project alongside Cannell’s daughter, TV director Tawnia McKiernan. Albert Kim (‘Sleepy Hollow,’ ‘Nikita’) is writing the adaptation.

Joe Carnahan directed a big screen take on the action-adventures series back in 2010. The film, starring Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton Jackson, failed to break the box office.
