    Luc Besson is listed as an executive producer, but only that, so I'm going to bet this is going to suck like the other time they tried to adapt his films to TV, La Femme Nikita.

    But Besson seems highly involved in Taken 2, so maybe that'll be good.

    As an idea it should translate really well to episodic television. In reality though it'll probably be some cheaped-out soulless thing that gets cancelled halfway through the first season.

    It could be pretty cool, the style of plot can be pretty easily turned in a good TV-series. the "badass mercenary who kicks ass and takes names" is an old plot that always works well.

    The problem I see here is that it will end up becoming too formulaic to be fun after one season or so, they'll have to add a supporting cast and y'know, a plot.
