Expendables TV Series on the Way!

It will come as no surprise that a spin-off TV series from The Expendables is in the pipeline.

That’s great news, I hear you say!

Alas this isn’t set to feature any of the cast from the films and will star “”legends” from television instead.

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the full report from Deadline below.

TV action stars are getting The Expendables treatment as Sylvester Stallone’s hit feature franchise is heading to television. Fox is developing The Expendables, an event series based on the movies, with the franchise’s writer and star Stallone executive producing alongside the films’ producer Avi Lerner and NCIS veteran Shane Brennan who serves as showrunner.

Writing/executive producing the TV adaptation are feature writing duo Greg Coolidge(Ride Along) & Kirk Ward and Brennan. It is described as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly-skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist. The project hails from Lionsgate TV, whose feature sibling distributes The Expendables movies, CBS TV Studios, where Brennan is under an overall deal, and CBSTV-based Shane Brennan Prods. Also executive producing the potential event series, for which Fox has ordered a script, are Kevin King, long-time executive at Stallone’s Rogue Marble production company, and Shane Brennan Prods.’ Grant Anderson.

I wish this idea sounded exciting but it’s pretty tough; I’ll hold off judgment until I see some footage and who is involved.
