Pierce Brosnan is working on a return to series television in a new project at Sony Pictures TV.
The former Remington Steele and James Bond star is set to appear and produce a new series about an international operative and problem solver for hire.
The main character (who is not expected to be played by Brosnan) is brought in for high-drama situations like kidnappings and business espionage.
Sony is taking the series out into the international marketplace before shopping the project domestically.
Executive producers on the project include ER writer-producer Jack Orman, along with Beau St. Clair, Keri Selig and Brosnan.
Brosnan recently appeared in the pilot for Fox's Running Wilde, but has not been a series regular in a show since the 1980s hit Steele. The show paved the way for Brosnan landing the role of Bond in four films in the franchise. Pierce Brosnan is working on a return to series television in a new project at Sony Pictures TV.
Pierce Brosnan is returning to television with an investigative thriller from veteran ER writer-producer Jack Orman and Sony Pictures Television that will likely go straight to series. Orman has written a pilot script for the ex-007's project, which Sony is shopping to international broadcasters with the goal to land pre-sales elsewhere before taking it to U.S. networks.
The untitled drama centers on a "fixer," private investigator specializing in international crisis innervation who is called in to help solve homicides, abductions, financial schemes and other crimes anywhere in the world. It is largely based on the real-life experiences of international PI Logan Clarke, head of the Los Angeles-based Clarke International Investigations.
Producer Keri Selig started things off on the project when she took Clarke to Irish DreamTime, Brosnan's production company with Beau St. Clair. Brosnan, St. Clair and Selig will executive the series with Orman. Brosnan won't play the lead but is expected to have a smaller role on the show in the vein of Hugh Jackman's involvement on Viva Laughlin, which also was produced by Sony TV. Brosnan's only previous major TV series gig was his starring role on the 1982 NBC adventure dramedy Remington Steele. Last season, Orman wrote the Sony TV-produced pilot Matadors at ABC. Brosnan and Orman are with CAA.
