The Avengers 50th Anniversary of Steed and Mrs Peel 1965-2015

Evening everyone,

I'm hoping non-trek fan productions can go here, so mods feel free to move this to the correct category.

After sadly not acquiring the rights to the original series for a pilot back in 2011, we're back to produce a fan based tribute to the iconic pairing of John Steed and Mrs Peel, which celebrates 50 years this year.

To be produced to the tune of over £25,000, if not more, we will be presenting a rebooted re-telling of the 'The Cybernauts' episode in a short film, accompanied by several film clips, and a photo shoot to celebrate this anniversary.

There's little more I can say at this point, but I would like to provide updates over the course of pre-production, filming and post, via this thread to reach fans and interested parties.

The site is merely a place card at the moment but more will be added as we go long... and we even have new silhouette to mark the occasion The Avengers | Official Site.



We'll have more information later this weekend; this one's going to be fun.

No love for Cathy Gale? The series is 54 years old, starting in 1961.

Re: The Avengers 50th Anniversary of Steed and Mrs Peel 1965-2015

As our introduction suggests this is the 50th anniversary of the first appearance of Emma Peel with John Steed, which is why we are producing this... as the tribute incorporates those characters. We are aware the 50th for the series in it's entirety was back in 2011. This is a different celebration, but for a much loved television, onscreen partnership.

We had originally pitched to produce a professional TV pilot for the 50th of the series several years ago, but we were not successful in acquiring the television rights and missed 'that' celebration... but 1965 was 50 years ago and another significant event in the series history as presented itself so we are using that as hook to produce a worthy tribute to 'this' event.

But appreciate you bringing that up so we can dispel any confusion.

Good on you mate. I'm a long time fan of ST, and The Avengers... is this the same group that put out that short video a few years ago?

It is indeed

The production standards have improved as has production design, since that screen test was released a little while back.

The teaser trailer is now up on the site albeit it is a dreadful tease.

More details to follow, and you can follow updates on facebook and twitter.

Love the teaser!

My one claim to fame is that I've shaken hands with Dame Diana Rigg--she was Chancellor of the University of Stirling when I graduated

The Avengers was at it's best with Steed and Emma Peel in '65 '66 '67 '68. IMHO.
