Lionsgate UK Remaking ‘The Professionals’ – Deadline.com
The UK arm of Lionsgate will start pre-production on its big-budget remake of cult 1970s British TV series The Professionals this fall. The action series about secret agents was a hit across Europe and in Australia but never made it to the U.S. The series was hatched by The Avengers creator Brian Clemens and made local stars of actors Martin Shaw and Lewis Collins, who played the agents. Gordon Jackson — best known as the butler in Upstairs Downstairs — played their dour Scottish boss.
