Sylvester Stallone Franchise

Deadline reports that the Fox network is developing the Sylvester Stallone created franchise “The Expendables” for TV, with old TV stars instead of old movie stars.

This new Expendables team of highly-skilled heroes will reportedly unit to stop a deadly terrorist. Meh, couldn’t be worse than the films. Chuck Norris, Kelsey Grammer, and Terry Crews are also television stars, but there is no cast attached yet.

Greg Coolidge (Ride Along) and Kirk Ward (“NCIS: LA”) are writing a pilot with Shane Brennan, Stallone, and Avi Lerner executive producing.
