assassin series on Starz "Noir"

I guess Starz is sore that they didn't jump on the bandwagon in 2010 and missed the boat that season. They have just decided to
greenlighted to series Noir, a live-action adaptation of the 2001 Japanese anime series
in development at the imdb.com link
Noir (TV Series 2012)
no info but the deadline article mentions:
Steven Lightfoot (Criminal Justice) wrote the adaptation and will executive produce the series with [Sam] Raimi, Tapert, fellow Spartacus exec producer Joshua Donen as well as Bill Hamm.
and if you are interested in the anime series origins:
Noir (TV Series 2001) "Now‚ru" (original title)
The series follows the story of two young female assassins who embark together on a personal journey to seek answers about mysteries from their past. While at first they seem to be only vaguely related to each other, there are clues and hints given throughout the series that there are more than meets their eyes. During the course of the series, they are lured into more and more traps by a secret organization named Les Soldats ("The Soldiers" in French).
according to Wikipedia

This sounds okay. I've watched the Covert Affairs show and that is very CIA-mission-driven and similar to Alias episodically. I guess Noir would be more like Nikita.
Hey chicks with guns and female assassins are great. get the men demographic for sure. I'd watch Alias again.
