The A-Team TV Series Remake

A-Team Update — With a Gender Twist — in Works From Sleepy Hollow Vet

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, you’ll once again know where to find The A-Team.

After a 2010 big screen adaptation starring Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson, 20th Century Fox TV is developing a contemporary take on Stephen J. Cannell’s ’80s action series, our sister site Deadline reports.

No longer a boys’ club, the project — penned by Albert Kim (Sleepy Hollow, Nikita) — will revolve around a diverse team of male and female American Special Forces operatives. Framed for a crime they didn’t commit, the group attempts to clear their names by uncovering the black-ops conspiracy that set them up. The mission-of-the-week format also finds the team using their singular military skills, high-tech expertise and conflicting individual approaches to help others in need.

Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious) will serve as executive producer alongside Cannell’s daughter, TV director Tawnia McKiernan (Criminal Minds, Grimm).

The original A-Team aired on NBC from 1983 to 1987.
