The Avengers (ours not Marvel's)

Shane Black is spearheading a revival of the Steed and Peel Avengers, set in 60s Britain as the original show was... sort of. Depends on casting and other writing and so on, of course, as the basic premise is “spy show with a rather high Weird Level” and they might not get to keep the name.

Back in the day I thought ITV should bring it back to go up against Doctor Who. (And I would have called Colin Firth about playing Steed, pre The King’s Speech when he became too big and very pre Kingsman when he basically did that.)
