Enemy of the State Series, Based on '98 Will Smith Movie, in the Works at ABC

Enemy Of The State TV Series

Add one more to the reboot pile: The 1998 spy thriller Enemy of the State is getting the small-screen treatment at ABC, our sister site Variety reports.

Starring Will Smith and Gene Hackman, Enemy followed a crew of NSA agents who came together to murder a U.S. Congressman — though things became a little more complicated when a video recording of the murder mysteriously surfaced.

ABC’s reboot — executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, a producer on the film — is set two decades after the movie; it follows an aggressive FBI agent who teams up with an idealistic female attorney in order to snuff out a global conspiracy that connects them to an NSA spy charged with exposing classified intelligence.

Morgan Foehl (Blackhat) will pen the pilot.
