Furious 7 writer Chris Morgan, Nikita producer Albert Kim and A-Team co-creator Stephen J Cannell’s daughter Tawnia McKiernan are on a special assignment for 20th Century Fox TV to revamp the ’80s series.
This new version of The A-Team will maintain the original premise of a Special Forces squad determined to clear their names after being framed for a horrific crime.
Unlike the original version, the new A-Team will be a mix of both male and female members – although it’s not clear if any classic characters will be used.
Deadline reports that the series is being envisioned for a mission-of-the-week format, in which the A-Team help out random people in need.
The iconic cast of the original A-Team included George Peppard, Dirk Benedict, Dwight Schultz and Mr T as a ragtag band of special forces soldiers.
The A-Team was previously rebooted as a 2010 feature film, with Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Sharlto Copley taking on the iconic characters from the ’80s show.
