Re: ABC to bring back the early 2000's

^ I'm hoping something happens with Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson (as they are thinking about working on some projects)

Anyways back to the reboot of Alias. I'd rather see a spin off, instead of a reboot. Anyways right at the moment, I'm watching the pilot episode for the first time.

NBC - "Legends"

NBC just greenlit a pilot called "Legends" which is another CIA/Alias-type show. has the story. (i couldn't copy & paste the URL on this mobile web browser.)

Let's count 'em:
Nikita, Covert Affairs, Under Covers
and the 'in development' True Lies series coming, & ABC Family's "Shadows".

okay some are FBI-based but all are the spy genre.

ABC is reportedly in talks about producing a remake of Alias.

According to E! Online, the network is in very early discussions about making a new version of the spy drama.

The original series, which aired from 2001 to 2006, was created by J.J. Abrams and starred Jennifer Garner as a double agent.

A source claimed that the remake would use some parts of the original series but would avoid mythology-based storylines such as the Rambaldi plot.
yeah why to think outside the box ABC, anything else you want to remake, Lost?

Is there any originality left in US networks.
Expect way more of this if Hawaii 5-0 takes off.

Legends pilot for NBC

Writer Mark Bomback ("Live Free or Die Hard") has sold a put pilot to the network along with producers Howard Gordon ("24") and Jonathan Levin ("Charmed").

Titled "Legends" the 20th Century Fox TV project is about a government operative with an uncanny gift for "legends" -- what spooks call false identities -- and is sent on a variety of missions while simultaneously coping with the possibility that his own identity may be a "legend" too.

^^^ That sounds similiar to the original idea for the NCIS spin off.

untitled spy series for Summer 2010 from ABC

Perhaps this is the spy series this thread was originally about.

untitled spy drama eyed for next summer.
While it has received a script order, there is already talk about 3-5 back-up scripts. And feelers have been sent out to writers to join the potential series. The project, from ABC Studios and Scharbo and Matthews' Little Engine, is a female-centered spy show described as Taken meets The Bourne Identity.

ABC already has 2 female-friendly spy dramas in the works for next season: remakes of Charlie's Angels and True Lies.
