America to remake Spooks
America's ABC is now going to remake UK spy drama Spooks.
Add Spooks to the growing list of remakes….
ABC Studios has closed a deal with Shine-owned Kudos to adapt Spooks, which has received a script order from ABC.
However there is a question over whether the spies will be American or British (guessing the latter?).
Michael Seitzman (Empire State, House Rules) will write and executive produce the new version.
The UK series already airs in the US as MI-5 on A&E, BBC America and PBS.
Spooks, created by David Wolstencroft, follows the work of a group of MI5 officers based at the service’s Thames House headquarters in highly secure offices known as The Grid.
